Adidas has just announced the release of its vintage Forest Hills shoes as a part of its Adidas Originals lineup.
Adidas Forest Hills were distinctive for their tennis style from the 1980s and were distinctive for their footbed, which incorporated NASA technology for comfort on and off the tennis court.
Three new exclusive re-releases of the shoe come in a premium tumbled white leather uper and feature gold three stripe branding and heel tab, yellow lightweird mid sole and grey brushed suede toe bumpers. Designed with Velcro fastening straps and displaying a tonal embossed logo on the fresh white leather upper, the Forest Hills vintage shoes are a celebration of 60 years of “soles and stripes”.
The originals quickly gained popularity in the United Kingdom during the football terrace scene of the 80s and have since marked their place in history.
