adidas Wilhelm Bungert
- MODEL: ADIDAS WILHELM BUNGERT
- TYPE: TENNIS
- MADE IN: CHINA
- MADE ON: 10/05
- ART.NO: 749922
A slightly more understated and classy shoe to many adidas models, the Bunghert (named after the German tennis star from the 1960s) has cool, soft lines as well as inoffensive, all-white coloring.
Comprised of full-grain white leather and the trademark three stripes, the shoe is as sturdy as it is classy. A synthetic toe box, similar to that of the Superstar, only without the shell effect, rounds off the front of the shoe nicely.
A thick white sole makes for optimum traction and comfort, everything you would want from a tennis shoe. A timeless classic and a silhouette is firmly implanted in our minds, this could be seen as the original precursor to the Superstar, owing somewhat, to its astonishing success.
