Adidas Continental 80 Trainers

adidas Continental 80: The retro chic of the 80s in a new design

With the adidas Continental 80, adidas launches a design that was already hip in the 70s and 80s. Retro design meets high quality leather in the adidas Continental 80: The adidas Continental 80 belongs to the adidas Originals (Continental) series and takes you on a journey back in time, when tennis and aerobics shoes were also part of the street look. This sneaker is a further development of the adidas Continental indoor shoe of the late 80s – reissued with fresh colours. You can get the Continental 80 adidas for women or children in one colour in black, white, or beige – or in different retro colour combinations.

The Continental 80 adidas in court style celebrates its comeback in leather

The skate shoe is made of soft leather with a French Terry lining. This fabric, better known as sweat fabric, is actually a jersey and consists of cotton and elastane (in our case 96 percent and four percent respectively). The adidas sneaker comes with a two-piece rubber cup sole. The light and flexible EVA midsole as well as the OrthoLite insole ensure maximum wearing comfort and optimum cushioning. It is a shoe that goes with every look. The high-quality materials, the low cut and the adidas-typical design with the three stripes make the Continental the ultimate trainer for the whole family. Thanks to the perfect fit, this classic is ideal for long periods of wear.

An adidas icon rethought: The adidas Continental 80 is sustainable

adidas is committed to sustainability and, through intelligent recycling of plastic waste, has managed to give classic models such as "Stan Smith", "Superstar" and the retro model Continental 80 a new touch – in terms of design and material. These trainers are available in sustainable and vegan versions. This is how the sportswear manufacturer from Herzogenaurach wants to reduce the consumption of new materials – for better environmental protection. The upper material of the trainers is made of 70 percent reusable materials, and in the eco version of the adidas Continental 80, the laces are made of paper and the soles are created from a mixture of natural and recycled rubber. The slogan "This shoe alone will not save the planet" can be found on some models as a lettering. All adidas Continental 80 sneakers are made of leather. This comes from environmentally conscious leather manufacturers who have been tested and certified by the Leather Working Group's requirements protocol. The audited tannery received the "Silver" award.
