After dusting off the cobwebs earlier this year, adidas Originals continues the revival of their coveted European City Series, this time reissuing the iconic Bern OG.
It’s a hot topic amongst adidas collectors which of the brand’s City Series collections sit at the top of the list, but more often than not it’s the European collection that has fans trawling through thrift stores and forums to try and find that limited-edition release from the series.
Introduced throughout the 1970s/early 1980s, adidas Originals’ European City Series chronicled 24 cities throughout Europe, with each commemorative shoe characterised of by its own unique colourway. adidas recently revived the collection earlier in 2019, and now they’ve unearthed yet another ‘70s classic that lifts its name from the Swiss capital of Bern.
A 1-to-1 reissue of the original, the classic silhouette returns for the first time since 2014 in its iconic blue and green makeup that first appeared on West Germany-made models in the late 1970s. Serrated leather three stripes sit atop the Bern’s plush base, while the brand’s Trefoil logo emblazons the crinkled tongue. Below, the pair is rounded off in classic fashion with a gum rubber outsole.[ratings]
