adidas Barcelona : The City Series Continues
When it comes to no nonsense, low profile designs and archive inspired detailing, you cant go far wrong then with the adidas ‘City Series.’ Drawing inspiration from various cultural hotbeds across the globe, some of the most sought after and rarely seen silhouettes grace its ranks including the newly refurbished adidas Barcelona.
First released in the collections early days during the ’70s and ’80s, the adidas Barcelona has remained scarcely seen for the past 30 years. Rearing its head briefly in the latter stages of last year with a selection of minimal white predominately leather colourways, the trainer truly made a resurgence following its limited edition soiree with Manchester United.
Taking things in a completely new direction, this latest update to the Barcelona saga, sees more traditionally aligned fabrics deployed alongside a double helping of vibrant primary hues. Constructed from a supple suede fabric and utilising the fan favourite t-toe construction for additional support in areas of high stress, the trainers boast leather overlays to the heel and sides in the form of a triple helping of striped accents.
Below, the trainers lift their sole unit from that of their like-minded peer, the Trimm Trab. Adding a slightly yellowed appearance as a nod to its vintage roots and slimming down the proportions just a touch to fit seamlessly into modern day styling, embossed branded can be found to the rear quarter. With further logos found to the tongue as well as a contrasting trefoil to the back, the Barcelona is finished with a metallic gold namesake motif, for easy identification when on-foot.
