Designed for athletes in the 70’s, the SL shoe was created for during a pivotal era for athletics and adopted by change-makers of the time. adidas Originals first released the SL silhouette in 1972.
Now, adidas Originals is bringing the SL 72 OG silhouette back one for one from the archive alongside its later 1980 iteration, the SL 80. True to the classic design of the original, this latest release sees the SL 72 model rendered in its original form, featuring a lightweight nylon upper with suede panels on the forefoot and heel for structure. Contrast white leather serrated 3-stripes mark and heel-tab complete the look, rounded off with tonal laces, an EVA rubber midsole and a durable sawtooth outsole.
