As the title says, this timeless classic is celebrating middle age by returning to the Ateliers Heschung factory in Northern Alsace, home of Adidas footwear in the 1970s.
In that factory, the shoe has been faithfully recreated using premium leather and minimalist detailing, with black three stripe detail, unbranded heel tab, leather lining, white lace set and, of course, the famous off-white shelltoe.
12th December 2014 is the date for your diary, with End Clothing confirming stock of the shoe. No price as yet, but certain to be at the premium end of the price range. If you want a standard pair, they are now on pre-order too in a similar colourway, selling for a more affordable £62.
