It’s An Originals Thing: Classic Track Tops & Tees
Our latest collection from the German sportswear brand includes the retro adidas Originals track top which delves deep into the 3 stripes archives.
If you wanted to get your hands on retro adidas before adidas introduced their Originals line in the early noughties your only option really was to trawl through endless rails at your local vintage store. There was the odd chance that you might come across one of them proper retro looking adidas track top styles only to realise it was 2 sizes too small. As much as shopping for vintage sportswear still has its perks, the Originals line has made vintage adidas sportswear a lot more accessible to retro lovers. The Originals line revived heritage styles from the Herzogenaurach archives, re-introducing the original trefoil logo from the 70s & 80s as oppose to the performance logo of the Equipment series that had been used by the brand since the early 90s. For the latest season adidas Originals again delve deep into their sportswear archives with the introduction of the retro adidas Originals track top which is sure to get vintage 3 stripes fans talking.

The adidas Originals Classic track top gives a nod to retro track styles from the 1970s & 1980s. The track top is a key part of any retro adidas collection, as seen in the dugouts on a range of football teams who were sponsored by the German sportswear brand at the time. Before the days of £750 million endorsement deals with Man Utd, adidas introduced a range of track tops for players to wear before games whilst they were warming up. The retro adidas stuff from the 70s & 80s is simply some of the best, known for its colour blocking designs and true vintage sportswear aesthetic. The adidas Originals Classic track top is a great example of what the Originals line does best & could have quite easily come straight out of 1985.

Other highlights from the latest adidas Originals collection include a range of Essentials track tops, trefoil logo tees & nostalgic tennis designs.
