Adidas Hamburgs – Historic Icons

Adidas Hamburg Trainers – Decade Symbols

Symbolic of the 1980s, the hotly anticipated re-release of the Adidas Hamburg dominates the world of footwear yet again, enticing the modern man with a taste in retro clothing. Originally released in 1982 as a training staple, the shoe has evolved over the years into a cross between running and fashion, setting the standard for performance footwear over the years. Associated with the football casuals and mod scenes, the shoe thrived on its more simplistic approach to trainers, formulating a robust and long lasting staple for every males wardrobe.

Hamburg Trainers

Inspired by the Hamburg urban life, the silhouette was birthed into the Adidas ‘City Series’, yet held a more exclusive status amongst the others due to the brands inability to keep up with the demand. A prize piece amongst avid collectors, the Hamburg sees itself re-invented season upon season to keep up with the desire to invest in the iconic shoe. Helping to constantly turn back the clock on the three stripe heritage, the shoe pays respects to iconic moments in music, football and fashion cultures.

Hamburg Trainers

Combining the desirable features of the Adidas silhouettes, the latest drop of Hamburgs introduces a range of bubble gum retro shades draped across each look, with textured premium plush suede uppers oozing a textural fantasy of luxury. Gold foil callouts and retro gum outsoles accompany trefoil branding to the tongue, whilst leather heel and t-shaped toe panels provide a layered approach. Perfect for teaming with your favourite pair of denim for the streets, or gym wear for a retro sports look these iconic silhouettes are set to level up your shoe game year after year.

adidas have been churning out some heat this month with these new Hamburgs following on from the release of the adidas TRX Runner.

The Latest adidas SL 72 Trainers To Land

Three stripes fans rejoice, the brand legend is back in multiple colours

As any adidas aficionado worth their salt knows, the SL 72 made history in the ‘70s when it became the first trainer to carry the now synonymous Trefoil logo. Labeled a brand icon ever since, the design has charmed generations with its heritage look and sleek design lines, making it a timeless favourite that cannot and will not be pushed off the top spot.

adidas SL 72 Cream

No stranger to a colourway switch up, the signature sneaker has just landed on our doorstep in a trifecta of different hues – cream, grey and olive – you can’t get much more versatile than that can you? We reckon you could pair these three new arrivals with just about anything from your wardrobe, but before you take the leap and decide to purchase, let’s take a closer look at this retro runner in all its modern glory.

adidas SL 72 Grey

Characterised by vintage cues, this blast from the past boasts a slim profile that hugs the foot with a narrow but comfort-rich construction. The Trefoil credentials and serrated 3-stripes featured throughout prove that the adidas SL 72 hasn’t strayed too far from tradition over the decades. And although this latest rendition is nigh on the same as the original [appearance wise] underfoot it’s a totally different story.

adidas SL 72 Green

A springy EVA midsole is housed internally, demonstrating the very best in contemporary performance and offering the most effortless ride, no matter what your destination. Up top, that classic combination of nylon and suede drapes the design, serving up a two-tone appearance which has became a distinctive factor of the SL 72.
