adidas BW Army Trainers | White/Gum & Black/Gum

adidas BW Army Trainers | White/Gum & Black/Gum | Releasing 16th of June

adidas finally unearth one of their most iconic, yet rarely seen silhouettes: the BW Army. In the 1970s, adidas made a simple yet surprising stylish indoor training shoe for the German army, which has since become something of a design classic. Its slim, simple design with clean uppers and suede blocking set atop a gum sole have made it a casual staple across the world, a regular fixture of European second-hand and surplus stores, and subject to several homages, notably by high fashion pioneers Maison Margiela.

adidas BW Army TrainersThis new version by adidas upgrades the original with premium leather uppers and tonal suede overlays, a cool and comfortable Ortholite sockliner, and subtle adidas branding, but remains faithful to the original design. After all, if something isn’t broken, why fix it? The slim, minimal silhouette and timeless styling allows the BW Army to be worked into a wide variety of outfits, from casual tailoring to more laid-back street-ready looks.

adidas BW Army TrainersThis has been a highly-anticipated release for many, as the Three Stripes haven’t touched this silhouette for nearly ten years. The adidas BW Army will release in both white and black colourways on the 16th of June, available instore and online from Aphrodite Clothing.
