adidas Originals has a massive catalog of classic designs, but here’s a new release that only looks like it was created a quarter-century ago. The adidas Originals Hard Court hints at Three Stripes’ ’80s basketball aesthetic with its hightop cut. An ‘x’ overlay on the ankles immediately conjures images of the Forum Mid, and while the sole is a slimmed down vulcanized one to keep with today’s trends, there’s no denying its lines resemble the Metro Attitude. The first three colorways are every bit as timeless as the design, with one pair going the Chicago-style route, another opting for a simple contrast of white and blues, and a third offering a bit of the ‘Grape’ flavor. Check out shots of all three by clicking the jump below and look for these this month at Eastbay.
