Despite getting my hands on a pair a week earlier than everyone else (see pic) I still can’t quite believe that adidas have actually gone and re-issued the semi-mythical suede beast known as the ‘Trimm Star’. It’s like finding out that unicorns are real or that DFS haven’t got a sale on this week. A long time ‘holy grail’ amongst trainer obsessives, this faithful re-issue of the Seventies shoe is arriving in two exclusive colours (argie blue and dark marine) this Friday at Size? Now if you’ll excuse me I’m off to plait some rocking horse shit into a pair of Omega Flames.
I create a leave a response whenever I especially enjoy a post on a site or if I have something to valuable to contribute to the discussion.
Usually it’s caused by the sincerness communicated in
the article I looked at. And on this article SIZE?
Exclusive: adidas originals trimm star. I was excited enough to
post a thought 😉 I actually do have a couple of questions
for you if it’s okay. Could it be simply me or do some of the comments come across
like left by brain dead individuals? 😛 And, if you are writing at additional online social sites, I’d like to follow anything new you have to post.
Would you list all of all your public sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page
or twitter feed?
I am at a point where I no longer purchase trainers but have bought enough in my time to offer an opinion.
I saw today that Adidas were launching Adicolors…..in multiple colours! Which in a stroke defeats the whole object of what the OG Adicolor was – A blank white canvas to be customised by the owner as they saw fit. They probably wont have any pens with them?
These are no different to the Londons mentioned above as in not being in the C/W of the first shoe that had that name just a shoe that bears the name ‘London’.
These shoes are IMO not OG re-issues at all. They are shoes which happen to share the name of a shoe previously released and which have a similar appearance to help market them on the back of nostalgia or what younger folk have seen in books/ebay/internet, etc..
Neither Adidas or any other brand are in the nostalgia business. They are merely feeding a market sector with a seemingly voracious appetite for this style of release. And if the customer is happy and they look good on the foot why worry what name they have attached to them.
As these seem sure to sell out, presume we will be seeing them in all sorts of colours within 18 months, a la Gazelle, London, samba etc etc?
I always picture the OGs in green but I think you’re right about brown, I don’t think they’ve unwittingly got the colours wrong, its more that they’ve just gone for something new/exclusive
This is a good re-issue, but in the wrong colours.
If I’m not wrong, the OG Trimm Star is brown!?
