adidas Italia

  • MADE ON: --/06
  • ART.NO: 561516

The adidas Italia was originally released in 1959 just in time for the Olympic Games in Rome in 1960. During this event the silhouette was actually the most worn shoe by athletes and ever since then it has become increasingly more popular among both avid sneaker collectors and casual wearers alike.

The model is known for its EVA midsole, a technology that provides advanced shock absorption, as well it’s reinforced toe box. This re-issue features an all white, full leather upper, with contrasting green side stripes and heel patch. The toe bumper is completed in both green suede and off-white rubber for added protection and durability.

Both side stripes and lacestays are perforated in the traditional, iconic adidas style. The thin tongue is marked with the royal blue adidas Originals emblem, and the kicks come with skinny white laces.
