After quite a delay the Adidas Stockholm City Series trainers reissue is on the shelves and is likely to sell through quickly.
The Stockholm design is pretty much peak Adidas and one of the most sought-after designs from the City Series. It’s good that it isn’t a one-store exclusive as demand will be high. But even allowing for that, I suspect the Stockholm will sell out very quickly.
Some City Series reissues don’t and have hung about long enough to go into the sales. But the sleek and slimline designs like this always sell out fast. They just look good. It is as simple as that.
As for the shoe, as I mentioned above, this is classic City Series and a shape that is universally loved and has been since this shoe first appeared way back in 1972. That’s right. This shoe is on the edge of its 50th birthday and still looking as cool as anything out there.
The new version of the Stockholm, just like the original, uses what’s described as a ‘buttery-soft suede’ for the upper in the Swedish colours of yellow and blue (of course). The yellow jumping out on the heel, stripes, and tongue against the blue background.
A gum sole, ridged tongue, and classic Adidas sole. That pretty much covers it. As ever, Adidas is at its best when it strips things down to the basics.
Want a pair? You can get one right now. The Hip Store has it in stock for £85. But they probably won’t be there by the end of the day.
