A lot of people were left disappointed when the blue version sold out, so make sure you are up early tomorrow to secure the 1960s Adidas Originals Athen trainers in red suede.
The design is the same as the blue shoe, but with the red suede coming into play for the upper. As for the design of this 1968 City Series shoe, that’s changed a little over the years, not least with the sole. But this is the shoe that occasionally (very occasionally) gets a reissue in the modern era. Slim, stylish, minimalist – everything you want really.
If you were stung by missing out on the blue shoe, make sure you are in a shop or at a computer early on Friday 16th December, as this take will also sell out pretty sharpish. If you are lucky enough to make it to the front of the queue, expect to pay £80 for the privilege.
