Adidas Airline Bags – Timeless Trefoil Logo

Adidas Airline Bags

Few brands can lay claim to have had such an influence in so many areas of style than the likes of Adidas Originals. Whilst first being bought to the world’s attention through their exploits on the track and field, Adidas underwent a transformation thanks to hip-hop legends Run DMC, after they all wore a pair of Adidas Superstars on stage, demand for the now infamous label with the trefoil exploded- something that was preserved by the group’s release of the song ‘My Adidas’, way back in 1986.

With their reputation only growing more and more formidable from that moment on, Adidas Originals went on to influence street culture and style through every aspect of the wardrobe, absorbing art, music and culture into their own distinctive styling. With retro styling coursing through every feature, Adidas Originals became cherished not just for its clothing and footwear, but also for its diverse range of accessories

One of these accessories, Adidas Airline Bags, has become a huge hit in contemporary style. With an obvious air of heritage design, Adidas Airline Bags strike that hugely desirable blend of on point design with practical features that give them a specifically relevant place in every man’s wardrobe.

With an aura of individuality that only the Adidas Originals brand can muster, Adidas Airline Bags carry the formidable trefoil logo, making them instantly recognizable, which, along with a crisp, sleek finish that imitates the niche clean nature of urban inspired street style, gives these bags a precision look of timeless cool.
