Sneaker Heights

Adidas Superstars

Height: 2.1cm (0.81in)

How much height do Adidas Superstars add?


Adidas Superstars are a basketball style sneaker first released in the late 1960's. With their iconic shelltoe design, these have proven a popular casual trainer for nearly 50 years.

In terms of thickness, the outsole measures near 3cm, but the actual height they give is closer to 2cm. In the video below I measured the Superstars to give between 2 and 2.1cm, or a solid 0.8 inches of height.
