Once a mainstay among players in the American Basketball Association, the adidas Americana has since been adopted primarily for casual wear. Most recently, the ’74 silhouette lent its debut red and white accents to the Superstar, which turns 50 this year. Soon, the aforementioned patriotic palette will be divided between a re-issue of the Americana in both Hi and Low heights.
Both cuts of the hoops-ready relic opt for a simple, but fresh look: “Cloud White” canvas and leather uppers reinforced at the toe with off-grey suede, sitting atop slightly yellowed soles. Each pair denotes its height in “Core Black” text on the lateral midfoot and is branded with basketball-accompanied “THE AMERICANA” logos on the tongue and insole. A “Glory Blue” stripe divides the Americana Hi’s plush collar, while a “Glory Red” counterpart similarly trims the Low’s leather heel panel.
This heritage model will be available on adidas.com come April 1st. Pricing ranges from $80 USD (Hi) to $70 USD (Low). While you wait for the duo’s release, grab a closer look at the shoes here below and check out Jonah Hill‘s first sneaker with adidas when you’re done.
