After spending several years out of the limelight since the last time we brought Trimm Star back as part of the Archive series, we’re pleased to announce it’s return this year. Originally released in 1985 and designed as a lightweight training shoe, the Trimm Star follows in the footsteps of a strong lineage of sportswear legends. The slim, low-profile look has been ever present on some of the greatest release from adidas Originals over the decades, each with performance always in mind. The shoe itself takes its name from a German sports initiative introduced by the government in the early 70’s to try and get people out of the house and getting healthy after the economic boom.
Branding is minimal across the whole shoe, with the signature gold foil emblazoned on the sidewall calling out the shoes namesake, and embossed lettering moulded within the gum Eberswalder midsole unit. The lacing system on the Trimm Star was also a bit more developed than some of the older silhouettes it’s related to. Ghilly loops replaced the standard eyelets, allowing for a more controlled fit that held your foot in place during physical activity.
This latest Purple & green make-up is based on a colourway originally found on a Japanese rendition of the Athens, with the purple featuring on the entire suede upper and tongue portion, highlighted by the slime green leather stripes and heel panel.
The size? Exclusive adidas Originals Archive Trimm Star will be available online at 08:00am and in all size? stores on Friday 23rd February, priced at £80.
