Classic Adidas Rom OG trainers get a reissue


Not the most obvious Adidas name, but the Adidas Rom OG trainers have been around in some form or another for over 50 years - and are back in 2010 in two colourways.

Originally launched in 1959 as an all-round training shoe, the Rom was updated in the late 70s with an EVA midsole and a more bold outsole, the version reissued here. Take your pick from an all-black or a navy on white for the colours, both with leather upper, gold ROM logo and gum sole.

Pre-orders are being now for what's sure to be a sell out, price is £65. See a shot of the black over the page.

This is the shoe (in white/navy) that the fictional Adidas "Zissou" was modeled after in "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou". I'm sure diehard fans will be buying them up, giving them yellow laces and painting the middle stripe light blue as in the film.

Cik Din

Vintage made in Yugoslavia, West Germany and France versions are still around. This one made in China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand or Indonesia? The materials are still the same? What's the Adidas article number? When it'll get into Asian market?
