Adidas return to the 80’s for a court inspired drop

Retro and vintage are two descriptions that are frequently being dropped. Sometimes it’s modern brands aiming to be super-cool and at other times it’s second-hand stores jazzing up their role in society. Every now and then however, a launch is imminent that truly follows the styles of yesteryear and Adidas have one of those lined-up.

The Continental 80 features a number of elements that allow us to reminisce of the hazy days at Wimbledon Tennis Club. Burning hot summers, Pimms and strawberry drift throughout the air. Visions of Stefan Edberg sprinting from side to side as Ivan Lendl demolishes the Swede. These low-top trainers featuring a swooping double two-tone colourway with cupsole bring back those memories racing back quicker than ever.
