Following on from the successful launch of the adidas Originals Spezial Union collection, the Originals team is back with another drop for the Continental 80 silhouette, which features new colourways.
Originally released in 1986, the archival Continental 80 model presents a casual silhouette in keeping with its classic 80s aesthetic. The reimagined silhouette was released last year and sees another refresh with fresh new colourways. The sneaker features a classic leather upper and rubber cupsole construction, along with the classic perforation marks across the lateral and toebox. There is also a branded “window” below the lace eyelets, which features the classic Trefoil logo, as well as two-tone webbing tape on the bottom side. There is additional Trefoil logos across the shoe on the heel, midsole and tongue to complete the classic picture. The EVA midsole provides timeless comfort to the wearer, as it compliments the rubber cupsole.
All the elements are throwbacks to the design elements from the era, with the end result being a classic, archival adidas release, bringing the enduring appeal of ‘80s Court style into a modern context. The adidas Originals Continental 80 with new colourways are available at adidas Originals stores, select retailers, as well as online at adidas.co.za.
