Less is More for the adidas Continental 80

Catalogue-spec Contis.

Looking like they’ve been pulled straight out of the adidas vault, a new trio of Continental 80s have entered the mix. The 30-plus-year-old all-rounder has enjoyed its revival in recent years, appearing in a smorgasbord of wild colours and materials. However, these new editions deftly apply the K.I.S.S. principle by keeping it simple, sneaker.

Atop white leather bases, grey lining and outsoles set the perimeter for colour, restricting it to only the mid panel stripe, lateral logo, and tongue. Opting for retro palettes of light and dark, the insertion of Sky Tint/Legend Marine, Vapour Pink/Glory Red, and Glory Green/Collegiate Green are fun options to choose from.

Take note: the Continental 80 is one of only a handful of adidas silhouettes to eschew the famous Three Stripes branding. Despite this, the copious yet subtle amounts of Trefoil branding throughout clearly make its brand known. Clean up the collection today on SneakerHub.
