1987 adidas Handball Top OG comeback!

1987 adidas Handball Top OG comeback!

19/11/2017
In 1987, the year of breakthrough in sneakers design, many well-established players on the market were looking for something fresh. A product that would, apart from offering performance excellence in sports, lure the eye with its design, a certain unique and fresh "vibe".

By the way, don't y'all feel like there's a full circle and 2017 is just like 1987?

But... going back to the post's main topic - today it's time to present another 30-years-old design brought to us by the fusion of 2017 - adidas Handball Top OG. Celebrating its 30. anniversary, the German brand decided to revive the model, with its original looks and the materials it was originally made of. Released in 1987 as indoor sneakers, adidas Handball Top OG was a continuation of 1979's Handball Spezial model and - just like the predecessor - stood out with its truly revolutionary design. Virtually all features have undergone a radical change, apart from the silhouette's rough outline. The brand's designers decided to use different materials for manufacturing, added perforations and removed the distinctive reinforcement from the shoes' upper. The sole was completely remade too, and even tread was not left the same! Especially the sneakers' distinctive textil-made "drei streifen" are worth noticing - thanks to them the shoes could offer the bigger comfort and elasticity.

adidas Handball Top OG were absorbed by urban clothing style soon after their release, becoming mainstream casual fashion icon. Do they still have it? Look and decide for yourself!
