With the Continental, Adidas has reissued an authentic 80's classic from their archives. The silhouette served as an inspiration behind the Yeezy Powerphase, and the streamlined sneaker is distinguished by a simplistic fit, subtle details and durable leather.
With perforated details on the side panels, branding on the tongue and along the laces, as well as a characteristic, curved line in navy and red, the Continental 80 stands out - even in spite of a monochrome upper in black or cream.
By combing through their archives, The Three Stripes start this summer off on a fresh note. The Continental 80 emphasizes that this season’s coveted retro aesthetics works best when they’re authentic.
