This Latest Version Of The adidas München Originated As A Japanese Exclusive
The original adidas München trainer first made its mark on the trainer world as part of the celebrated city series.
Cities have been widely celebrated when it comes to classic 3 stripes collectors and admirers. From Malmo to Milano and of course Munich, the adidas City Series explored some of the top European locations, their colours and their football teams. Drawing inspiration from the cities they were based on, the original city series from the 3 stripes brand has become some of the most celebrated trainer releases in the history of the German sportswear label. A firm favourite for the early casuals and dressers of the era, the 3 stripes stamped with city destinations became a popular sight across the country from terraces to training rooms. First introduced in 1976, the adidas München took its name from the Bavarian capital, home to the famous Bayern Munich football team and of course the annual Oktoberfest.

3 stripes admirers and collectors will be pleased to know the adidas München now makes its returns in a slightly different iteration to the original. This latest version was revived by Gary Aspden and his SPEZIAL line in 2015 taken from an archival exclusive Japanese release from the 1980’s. The adidas München Japan exclusive adopted a completely different sole unit to the original 76′ release taking away the traditional chunky white sole similar to that of the Trimm Trab, in replacement for the gum one. München trainers still hold a cult like status in the trainer world much like the majority of sought after classic sportswear we proudly sell here at 80s Casual Classics. These latest versions although different to the original, revives the München story from the 3 stripes archive.
