A classic from half a century ago, the 1970s Adidas Kick trainers are now back on the shelves and looking good.
It’s a shoe that tends to come and go from the Adidas Originals range, which is a shame, as it’s about as solid as old-school Adidas comes.
It was made and designed by Adidas back in 1974, specifically for the World Cup of that year, which was held in the brand’s own country, which was known at the time as West Germany (some years before the wall came down).
Which is why the shoe is known as Kick. Yes, a football reference. It was something of an all-rounder but also the perfect shoe for a kickabout with your mates in the park. It might still be, but at this price, you probably want to protect that white leather upper from scuff marks.
Yes, it does have the leather upper in white, with contrasting detail in black, some suede detail at the front, a fairly chunky sole (for Adidas of this era) finished with a herringbone gym sole.
Just out, and all the sizes are available, priced at £85.
