Brimming with 3-stripes nostalgia, adidas’ SL 72 sneaker makes a comeback for the new season in a trio of subdued shades. Having find fame in the 1972 Munich Olympic Games thanks to its ‘super light’, streamlined profile, this silhouette needs little to no introduction.
Contributing to the resurgence of track footwear from the ‘70s, the fresh design serves up distinctive vintage accents and iconic adi’ detailing; as with any runner from the brand’s archives, the shoe carries the sportswear heavyweight’s emblematic Trefoil logo, having been the first iteration to embrace the symbol back in its day. In addition to its instantly recognisable branding, the trainer comes crafted from hairy suede and nylon which only scales the throwback vibe some more, presented in stark contrast to the new-age tech underfoot – comprising a cushioning EVA midsole and robust rubber outsole.
Make sure to catch this retro runner at Aphrodite before they’re all gone.
