The Adidas Red Athen – another “old skool” direct replica release from the Adidas Originals archives. This shoe first appeared as far back as 1967! – then known as the Jaguar, it was redeveloped in the blue and white colours of the Greek flag to celebrate the 1968 Olympics and pay homage to the birthplace of the ancient and modern games. Seen here in a rare Red and White colourway, you may recognise it from similar City Series models like the ‘Brüssel’ or ‘Bern’.
The “new” edition adidas Red Athen uses premium materials – an upper of soft suede, white coloured three stripe branding to the sidewall and wrinkled leather tongue. The retro Gum midsole adds to its authenticity and other areas contrast such as the heel overlay and lace surround.
A rare re-issue, timeless design and a very limited production run means that this vintage trainer is a must-have for serious adi collectors.
