First debuted in 1986 for the tennis courts, the sneaker has seen a wide resurgence thanks to its resemblance to the YEEZY Powerphase model. While adidas has been busy dusting off the old archived silhouette and releasing modern iterations of it, this particular version appears to be the most minimal yet. Every detail found on the upper, including the logo, is lined in tonal white leather, while its cream-colored sole nods to the heritage of the sneaker. This same color scheme is applied on other sneakers in the lineup: pared down to its essential form, thematically painted with a clean white upper and vintage ecru midsole. As a finishing note, embossed markings on the tongues of each silhouette denote them as part of the collection.
Continental 80 Vulc
Continuing its retro-inspired reworks of the Continental 80, Adidas reinvigorates the silhouette by adding a vulcanised sole unit. Blending the Three Stripes’ skateboarding history, the outsole delivers enhanced underfoot durability for anything from the concrete to the grip tape.
