Following up from our Kegler Super ‘Running Spike’ iteration, the next instalment to our Archive collaboration with adidas Originals sees us dip into adidas’ vault once more; this time wrapping the Kegler in a famous colourway which was made exclusive to Japan upon its initial release. We’ll get on to those colour details shortly, but before that, a little about the Kegler’s history.
The Kegler Super began life in 1979 for the German indoor bowling sport Kegeln. Its innovative peg system was popular at the time, as it allowed the wearer to switch out the pegs in the heel to suit their own cushioning needs. What’s more, the pair utilised suede across the toe cap to enhance durability when the wearer’s toes dragged across the floor – a nifty bit of tech which has been included in this latest pair.
The same brushed bright red suede is used on the uppers, overlaid with contrasting yellow leather to the signature three stripes and heel tab. Signing things off, a classic two-tone hexagonal outsole is positioned underfoot, providing you with tailored traction to the surface.
