Adidas Look To Remake The Original ‘Made In Japan’ Munchen

A trio of colourways pay tribute to the original ‘Made in Japan’ adidas München collection…

The adidas München is an icon to say the least. Initially debuted in 1976, the München arrived as part of the German brands ‘City Series’ and offers that classic adidas aesthetic that we all go a little bit nuts for. The original München featured a soft suede upper, contrasting three stripes and a white sole unit, yes that’s right, a white sole. The silhouette didn’t see a gum sole until it was released in the 80’s as a Japanese exclusive style, the first of its kind, the gum soled München arrived in an array of colourways and the Asian exclusive is incredibly sought after and difficult to find nowadays.

While you may be correct in thinking that you can grab a pair of München’s with a gum sole from any decent trainer store, their availability only comes thanks to a reinterpretation of the model by Gerry Aspen in 2015. The OG colourways still remain to be seen, well that is until now…

For SS23 adidas have decided to treat us with a recreation of three of the Japanese Exclusive colourways, an ode to the OG as you will. They arrive in ‘Navy and Red’, ‘Red and Silver’ and most notably ‘Cream and Gold’. They all remain true to their predecessor with the contrasting colours, vibrant style and incredible shaping around the shoe from toe-box to heel. You’ll have to be quick if you want to pick these up though, every restock has sold out so far, hurry to cop your from this drop…
