adidas Originals' signature Continental 80 sneaker model is reworked with an update that is slightly edgier for a bold finish. The sneaker was originally launched back in the 80s and garnered more attention in more recent years. The shoe is updated with a zipper detail at the tongue and a classic Cloud White suede materials throughout the upper for a plush look.
This update is the perfect blend of utilitarian design language with the aesthetics of skateboarding culture. The zipper adds accessibility to the design for easy slipping on and off. The rest of the shoe includes the rounded laces, the metal eyelets the line up the medial and lateral side of the shoe, and outer eyelets on the main eyestay to look like bolted holes.
