adidas originals presents the home of classics footwear collection
- Home of Classics is inspired by the brand’s 50 years of experience in craftsmanship, sport, and culture
- The collection is made up of 10 timeless, court-inspired silhouettes
- The pack introduces archival styles into 2019 offering classic, versatile designs for all life experiences
- The three stripes will launch a variety of Home of Classics programming throughout Summer 2019
Championing the brand’s most coveted silhouettes, Home of Classics is led by the Stan Smith, Continental 80 and the Superstar 80s. The lineup also features the Supercourt, Torsion Comp, S.C. Premiere and A.R. Trainer.
First designed in France in 1986, the recently reissued Continental 80 model is heritage, remixed. Introduced into the Home of Classics pack in a tonal colorway, with a Trefoil logo window and white-on-white stripe detail, this Continental 80 is its most pared-down iteration yet.
The Superstar 80s model represents 50 years of adidas court experience, taking numerous design cues from the archive and blending them into a modern adaptation featuring textured construction built upon a classic rubber outsole.
Borrowed from the courts, the high-top 1975 basketball shoe Nizza Hi RF has been adopted by skateboarding culture, featuring an essential vulcanized rubber sole. Also taken from the hardwood court in 1986 and built for the era’s ultra-physical style of play, the Rivalry Lo model is another classic basketball silhouette that found its way onto the streets. Closing out the collection is the contemporary Supercourt RX model that blends elements from the entire span of adidas’ court archive.
