- MODEL: ADIDAS UNIVERSAL
- MADE IN: CHINA
- MADE ON: 08/08
- ART.NO: 015586
The adidas Universal is a classic silhouette originally from the 70s that is still in production today. The shoe has been made in a variety of colorways over the years, but it usually consists of a white and grey upper, colored stripes with matching heel, and a dark brown outsole. A slim, low cut model, made for walking, jogging, and running, the Universal has a fit and look that are very similar to a Samba.
This remake from 2008 is all white leather with a cream suede toe and blue and red stripes. The heel patch is done in red patent leather and the model name is printed on the sidewall. The adidas branding appears on the blue and red textile tongue patch and also on the dark brown, rubber outsole, which is made of two different tread patterns, complete with pivot points and a waffle cup.
As part of the adidas Originals line, the shoes are made for casual wear, comfort, and style, as well as for utility and sport. They come with white laces and are packed in the typical royal blue adidas Originals box.
