The adidas Continental 80, one of the lifestyle siblings of the Originals family recently featured in Pharrell‘s latest Hu capsule, is back for another release geared towards its more general audience. Shedding its cream-colored exteriors, the silhouette is now getting done up with a more classical approach by mimicking the look of the ever-popular white and green Stan Smith colorway. Uppers, which are usually done up in a full leather build, are constructionally modified out with a canvas majority and smaller amounts of leather overlays affixed to the forefoot and throat all hued in an angelic white. While the color-blocking doesn’t involve the original “Fairway Green” associated with the aforementioned 1960s model, a darker “Collegiate Green” tone is coated along the Trefoil branding, tongue/heel tabs, and the treading to evoke a similar look and feel. For those looking to scoop up a pair, these are available now in select retailers overseas, but expect a drop in the US to occur on adidas.com in the coming weeks.

In other news, here’s an on-foot look at the upcoming Yeezy 350 Asriel.
