Adidas have been on top of their retro’ing game over the last couple of years, well forever basically. The reconstruction of archive favourites has been warmly received by the Adidas fan boys, Adidas just have a knack for retaining original shapes and quality, giving consumers the closest thing to an OG as possible.
This release sees Scottish independent store Hanon collaborating with Adidas, with the guys over at Hanon getting creative to make a special make-up of the ‘Kegler Super’. The outcome is very strong, coming a black on black colour-up with carefully chosen materials and hits of familiar colours from the Samba and Forest Hill.
The material choice is so on point, coming in a high quality perforated leather on the upper with tonal suede overlays on the lace and 3 stripe panels. A single blue top eyelet gives the upper some ‘pop’ and gold trefoil detailing on the heel combines well with those plugs on the outsole. The attention to detail goes that little bit further with a scottish tartan footbed that is a nod towards the roots of Hanon.
A superb collaboration that keeps the classic feel of the Kegler intact, while combining effortlessly with the contemporary feel of the colour and material choices.
