adidas Originals L.A. Trainer (JD Exclusives)


First introduced in 1984, adidas Originals have created these two moody renditions of the classic L.A. Trainer exclusively for JD Sports.

The L.A. Trainer is a very significant shoe, both for adidas and running as a whole. When it was first introduced in ’84, it was the first outdoor running shoe to offer adjustable cushioning via the instantly recognisable plug system. The OG models came in either a suede/mesh combo or a full leather, both with tri-colour pegs. Here we see JD Sports strip this shoe down to a tonal beast, covering it in either a dark navy suede/mesh or a dark onix suede/mesh, both with tonal pegs in the heel of the white midsole giving it a stealth vibe.

It’s an iconic classic and these dark variations are very fitting for the current trend of dark tonal retro running shoes. At £65 a pair, you don’t have to worry about them taking a beating either, which is a bonus. In fact, they’d probably look good a bit battered.

Head over to JD Sports where you can find both pairs exclusively.
