- MODEL: ADIDAS KOPENHAGEN
- SERIES: ADIDAS CITY SERIES CITY SERIES (EUROPEAN CITY SERIES)
- MADE IN: WEST GERMANY
The adidas Kopenhagen was one of the first models in the European City series and has been highly sought after since its original release in the late 70′s. The original colorway was yellow with black stripes, heel tab, dimpled tongue, and a gum sole. The original model was produced in West Germany and was predominantly made out of leather.
Over the years there have been many remakes of the Kopenhagen silhouette, varying from suede to leather or even a mix of both materials, all of which have been reissued in various colorways. In November 2009 Norse projects reissued the Kopenhagen for the Consortium City Series to represent their city. This particular remake featured a navy blue leather upper, a suede tongue, stripes, and toe guard, and a perforated yellow leather heel tab.
The original colorway has recently been reissued in September 2011 as a part of the adidas Archive Pack which also includes a grey and blue suede version, as well as a blue and red suede version. These new Kopenhagen’s were made available for purchase at adidas’ No6 store in London. The infamous three stripes have definitely been on top of their game recently as their output of vintage models have proven to be both very successful and popular. The adidas Kopenhagen is a great example of the beautiful designs that adidas has stored away in their archives.
