adidas Originals Pre-Orders – May

As 2018 continues apace, adidas Originals deliver a crop of pre-orders for May that boast a distinct Russian influence to help get us all in the mood for the kick-off of the FIFA World Cup in June.

Most prominent is the Samba Classic. Eschewing the usual Samba callouts from the lateral sides of the shoe, this version instead sports LUZHNIKI text in both Roman and Cyrillic characters, commemorating the iconic Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, set to be the focal point of the upcoming World Cup. Given its legendary football DNA from both on and off the pitch, it’s only fitting that the Samba would be the focus of the collection. That classic off-white and red colourway doesn’t hurt its appeal, either.

The Russian theme continues on to a duo of adidas’ most recent addition to its stable of all-time classics, the adidas 350. Based on the obscure Asia-only A-350 from the 80s, the 350’s simple lines, premium leather construction and distinctive perforations have made it something of a connoisseur’s favourite for the last few years. The latest release shakes things up a little, adding overlays in bold, warm shades, and once again swapping out the traditional 350 callout for gold-stamped ‘MOSKVA’ lettering – the Anglicised transliteration of Москва, the Russian name for the country’s capital, Moscow (and also, perhaps, a nod to the Russian Special Forces’ very own adidas bootleg, the MOCKBA). This level of attention to detail is sure to appeal to collectors and casual fans alike.

Moving away from Russia and across the pond to the USA, this month also sees the welcome reintroduction of the iconic Forest Hills tennis silhouette. First released in 1976 and named for the site in Queens, New York, which at that time hosted the US Open tennis tournament, the Forest Hills has enjoyed a cult following over the years as one of adidas’s all time classic casual shoes. This version boasts clean, all-white uppers with perforated details — a feature that the Forest Hills pioneered — all set atop the signature coloured sole unit, dressed here in your choice of rich burgundy or cool clay blue.

Finally, what adidas Originals drop would be complete without an appearance from the venerable Gazelle Super? The Three Stripes mainstay returns this month in a duo of iconic colourways: a Brussels-inspired black and red, and a white and blue colourway that’s reminiscent of the more obscure Athen from the 1980s. Whichever you opt for, you’re getting premium leather construction and a classic gum sole unit that’s perfect to team with everything from jeans to tracksuits pants to shorts — you really can’t go wrong.

Want to get your hands on one of these amazing pairs? All of the above styles are available to pre-order through our online store now, with delivery expected some time in May.

adidas Originals Pre-Orders – April

Those of us in the UK may be heading into March in the throes of an arctic storm, but adidas have an eye firmly on the warmer months with their latest batch of trainer pre-orders.

Kicking things off in style, the 3 Stripes present a brand-new upgrade on an icon from its archives: the Samba Primeknit Sock. Following in the footsteps of the Gazelle and Stan Smith, the Samba is the latest to receive the Primeknit technology update, reducing the weight and increasing breathability while keeping the distinctive shape and design intact, making for the ideal summer trainer in both original white and black colourways.

Next we have a duo of colourways for the venerable New York. With trail running styles surging in popularity recently, it only seems fitting to give the New York its dues as one of the originators of the style. Coming in both a neutral white and a regal burgundy colourway, that signature webbing midsole and aggressive tread are sure to turn heads this Spring.

You know when winter is officially over once adidas start offering colourways like these: the pastel shades on these Bermudas are bound to look even better with the sun shining on them (especially on holiday). The use of super-soft nubuck leather combined with the ever-comfortable low-profile Bermuda shape makes these a winner for those lazy days.

Finally we have a couple of styles of last year’s Swift Run Primeknit with a multi-coloured weave for a bold look. Offering unparalleled lightness and flexibility whether you’re using them for the gym or the street, the Swift Run Primeknit is a low-key winner that we think is only going to get more popular as the seasons go on.

All the above styles are available to pre-order now, for delivery sometime in April. Keep an eye on our social media feeds for all footwear related updates.

adidas Originals Pre-Orders – January

After a bit of a quiet November, adidas are back with a vengeance for the new year, delivering a whole slew of classic styles in colourways both classic and fresh, ensuring you start 2018 with a bang.

Kicking off proceedings we have a pair of styles of the newly-resurgent Indoor Super, taking the archival model from the squash courts to the streets in two retro-inspired colourways. With their perforated suede uppers and uniquely textured gum cupsole units, this is a classic style that was long overdue for a reissue.

Speaking of welcome returns, January also sees the release of a duo of Samba OG styles, one displaying a retro sportswear-inspired white colourway with hits of rich green, the other reminiscent of the legendary adidas Dublin from the City Series. Whichever you choose, you can’t go wrong with this casual classic.

Next we have the Super variant of the venerable Jeans model, dressed up in a pair of sophisticated colourways, reminding us that this was always a shoe that was designed to both perform well and look good.

Always a favourite, the Gazelle Super comes made up with its usual colourful suede uppers, with a twist in the form of a black rubber outsole, giving them a high-contrast look that’s sure to pop even against those wintry streets.

Finally, we have a version of the popular adidas 350 in an ever-popular colourway: the red-on-black ‘Brussels’ pattern. Originally a Japan-only release, then resurrected by the Spezial program, the 350 was an instant hit, and with its simple, perforated uppers in premium leather and solid rubber sole, is sure to be a classic for years to come.

We will be taking pre-orders for all the above styles from the 1st of December 2017, with delivery expected sometime in January 2018.


adidas Originals Pre-Orders – November

As another month flies by, we turn once again to adidas Originals to see what they have in store for November Keeping things seasonally appropriate, we can look forward to a pair of rich colourways of the popular Bermuda silhouette. Coming in the usual slim silhouette with plush premium suede uppers — one in a jewel green, the other cool grey — and dark gum sole units for an overall clean look. We think the grey pair would look the business with a pair of navy chinos or textured wool trousers, while the green pair would be ideal to add a pop of festive colour to any casual outfit as it gets closer to winter.

Both pairs will be available for pre-order from the 1st of October, with delivery expected some time in November, from Aphrodite Clothing.

adidas Originals Pre-Orders – September

It’s the start of a new month, and that means it’s once more time for a fresh round of adidas pre-order sneakers. This month the focus is on two very different but equally iconic adidas models: the Gazelle and the New York.

The Gazelle is, of course, a staple of the Originals release schedule, but this time around the models on offer are particularly handsome, with smooth premium leather uppers set atop gum soles in classic black and red colourways with clean white and tonal red stripes respectively. The use of leather rather than the usual suede really smartens up the shoe and gives something a little bit different than the norm. Elsewhere it’s business as usual, with the classic moulded tongue, toe overlay and gold-stamped callout all intact for a truly classic look.

Meanwhile the New York continues its welcome recent return with two subtle colourways of black and khaki with suede and mesh uppers, while both styles are set off with metallic silver accents to the heel and 3 Stripes for a little extra flash. Elsewhere finds the D-ring lacing, Dellinger web sole unit and aggressive outsole tread intact, providing the all-day comfort and unique styling the New York is legendary for.

All four styles will be available for pre-order from the 1st of August, with delivery expected sometime in September.

May Pre-Orders

It’s that time of the month again when we launch our pre-order adidas styles.

We have a relatively quiet month this month with only 3 styles, but they have already proved popular the last few days online.

First up we have the Bermuda but this time coming in a blue colourway. Taking the shape of a more striped down version of the 70’s iconic football boot silhouette, the Bermuda’s always seem to hit the spot with the terrace fans and this month’s pre-order is no different. Crafted from a full suede upper, lighter blue suede overlays in the shape of the side stripes and heel tab sitting upon a tonal blue gum sole.

adidas Bermuda Trainers

Next up we have the 350’s coming in 2 colourways, red and black and blue and white. One of the more recent silhouettes, the 350’s draws inspiration from on and off the pitch. Crafted from premium quality leather, the one piece upper boasts perforation holes to the toe area for breathability while the textured tongue adds to the aesthetic appeal of the shoe. The classic stripes can be seen to the side panels in contrasting red or blue finished with a gold stamped callout.
