Nike is hands-down the leader in name association when it comes to footwear brands. 99% of people asked to pick a sneaker that didn’t say ‘Chucks’ would probably say Air Jordans or Nike Airs. Did you know that adidas has existed for over 85 years now?! They’re gaining market share thanks to purchasing Reebok and some dope new designs, but this new collection is a clear throwback.
The Adi’s Archive collection celebrates founder Adi Dassler’s legacy with four new vintage-looking lowtops. You’ll get a Wu-Tang coloured 1609er (1609 meters = 1 mile), with the iconic adidas Gazelle using a similar palette, just a darker brownish-yellow. To wrap up the pack, there are two pairs of the curiously named adidas Jeans, both of which should satisfy Philly phanatics. Each of these four pairs can be yours, but only if you hit up their exclusive retail source: Britain’s Size?
