The adidas Koln Blue White arrives shortly across UK and European stockists. If you’re a collector of vintage footwear, this is one release you can’t pass up on. This blast from the past first launched in the late 70s, a shoe which debuted as part of the European City Series.
It wasn’t until 1984 that adidas chose to discontinue the Koln but it remained an iconic sneak, amongst the most popular adidas Originals every released.
The shoe celebrated the fun-filled Cologne Carnival which takes place each year in this vibrant German city. This ‘Blue White’ Koln is a direct re-creation of the OG silhouette which is both eye-catching and refined.
Everything is restored from the suede crafted upper to the gum outsole and leather three-stripes across the sidewall. The contrasting hits of white manage to balance an otherwise tonal colourway. To finish this old-school masterpiece, gold foil lettering features the word ‘Koln’ across the sidewall.
The adidas Koln Blue White is scheduled to release on Thursday 9th November via the retailers listed. Stay tuned for more updates and stockist alerts on the run up to release.
