adidas Originals presents the latest instalment of its Yung series this week, bringing back a lesser-known model from the adidas archive in a one-to-one reproduction – the Continental 80.
Originally released in the late 1980s, the Continental 80 shoe is a classic casual model, made from a soft premium leather with perforation vents on the toe box and sides, placed atop a double cupsole.
Decoration comes in the form of a two-tone stripe running along the shoe’s sides beneath an old school trefoil-branded window below the lace panel. This is then finished with a terry cloth lining, completing the shoe’s pure retro feel.
Marking the return of the Continental 80 silhouette in perfect form, this release sees the shoe reproduced in its original colourway.
Look out for the adidas Originals Continental 80’s to release on Thursday, 21 June 2018 at select retailers including Superbalist.com, Shelflife (Joburg & Cape Town) for the retail price of R1599.
