While they're not a true retro, the AR Trainer from adidas Originals takes clear inspiration from vintage 80s court shoes. A smooth leather upper, asymmetrical toebox, and exposed wedge of EVA cushioning in the heel provide the materials and silhouette for the AR Trainer; two-toned stripes, an adidas spellout across the heel, and Trefoil branding on the heel and tongue complete the aesthetic of this clean, throwback-inspired offering.
The adidas Originals AR Trainer is currently available in both men's and women's colorways. Both colorways employ a Cloud White upper: the stripes of the men's AR Trainer are Collegiate Burgundy/Collegiate Royal while the women's version has stripes in True Pink/Tech Mineral. Come grab your pair online or in-store at 147 West 72nd Street, between Amsterdam and Columbus on the Upper West Side.
