Pack your shorts, sunglasses and shoes – our next stop on adidas Originals‘ City Series itinerary takes us to the Catalonian capital, Barcelona.
You all know how it is, adidas’ City Series first landed in the ’70s and ’80s and chronicled cities all across Europe. Many models have seen several resurrections since their debut, but there’s some – like the Barcelona – that has been scarcely seen since. It’s been tucked away in the archive for well over 30 years, making a fleeting appearance last year as part of adidas’ Manchester United collaboration, but now it’s back in all its OG glory once more.
Taking you back to the ’80s, white and ‘Royal Blue’ hues paint the model’s leather upper while supportive suede overlays make up the T-toe box. On the underside, the classic pair sits atop a similar, dual-density PU outsole to that of the Trimm Trab, however, the more attuned collectors amongst you will notice it has a slightly slimmer profile – more like that of 2015’s Chetcuti SPZL.
The adidas Originals Barcelona will be available via the size? website on Saturday 7th November, and priced at £85. Good Luck!
