Every year the start of June also marks the beginning of Pride month, a four week-long celebration of the LGBTQ+ community. Many sneaker brands acknowledge the festivities with special releases, and adidas is among their ranks, presenting a capsule collection each and every year. We’ve already seen a Pride-centric take on the Ultra Boost 2019, and now the Three Stripes has also revealed a new version of the Continental 80, complete with bold rainbow detailing. A lifestyle favorite from the adidas Originals line, the special Continental features a supple eggshell-colored leather upper, one that’s somewhat reminiscent of the adidas Yeezy Powerphase. Although the base is simple, it’s so the colorful accents can speak, and speak they certainly do. The midfoot’s fabric stripe features a five-color rainbow design that swoops from the collar down to the mudguard, and the trefoil-equipped tongue tag boasts similar rainbow stylings. The look is then completed by a rainbow-printed “Love Unites” graphic on the insole, a heartfelt nod to the most powerful force in the universe. These new Continental 80s will help kick off Pride month when they hit adidas.com on June 1st with a retail price of $80 USD. Check out a full gallery of images below, and stay tuned to our Sneaker Release Dates page for info on other impending Pride drops.
