adidas Handball Super Hi
- MODEL: ADIDAS HANDBALL SUPER HI
- MADE IN: FRANCE
- ART.NO: 033851
The adidas Handball Super Hi is a classic vintage silhouette from the days when sneakers were actually made in France. These sturdy, well-padded high tops provided a lot of athletic support as well as comfort for physical wear.
The Handball Super Hi’s upper is made of mostly white synthetic material with colored patches on the heel and ankle that match the three stripes in royal blue and black. The ribs of the upper heel as well the top and bottom of the tongue show hints of yellow, but the main attraction for this kick is the toebox and midsole which are encased in the softest grey suede.
The sockliner is extremely soft as well, made with a white, cotton-like, almost fuzzy material. The rubber, gum outsole is textured for grip, complete with two waffle cups for accurate pivoting, and is stitched and glued to the upper. Packaged in a vintage-style adidas Originals box – the kind that have ventilation holes for keeping shoes alive for many years – these shoes are truly a blast from the past.
