    Mine turned up Today.

    I’m surprised just how old school they look in the flesh.

    I had a pair in 1991 and the reissues in the noughties. I would have really liked these. Lets hope there's a restock

    Love a pair of Adidas, although I'm running out of space fast, just over 50 pairs at the moment.

    Well they’ve arrived and they’re great. The question is now - do I wear them or speculate that they’ll be worth more in 2-5yrs?

    Wear them fella, I very much doubt they will fetch much over retail even in a few years, did you notice the spelling mistake on the box?

    I think I will wear them. I’ve found a guy that restores trainers so if they start looking manky I can get them looking as good as new!

    They’re made to be worn so I will.

    Some nice pics and collections. I'm not really into Adidas as I've gone off there new designs. Still a fan of the classic style trainers though like the Dublin etc. I was always more into the ZX series and had a killer collection about 6 years ago which got stolen. These days I'm more into New Balance, Diadora, Filling Pieces etc. I'll get some pics up later of a few pairs.

    Keep the pics comming

  13. #113
    I would have posted up some pics but for some reason, I can't seem to upload or link pictures????

    Where’s best to see what new releases/ rereleases are coming? And also where’s the best please to pre order as I’m after some of the grey neon 95’s

    Jordan brand are trying their level best to empty as many peoples wallets as possible

    February will see the release of the black cement Jordan 3 the white cement Jordan 3 with clear sole off white Jordan 1, bred toe Jordan 1 and ovo Jordan 8s.

    But you can expect to find it incredibly difficult to acquire even 2 of the one listed below


    For the neon 95 your best bet is the sneakers app and places like End.

    END launches is the only pre order type place I know of, it's not technically pre order. Otherwise I've had luck on the Nike website on launch day.

    Far from a collector but worked in retail footwear for shoes. Always had a soft spot for adidas in particular.

    Had many limited editions over the years but the Carlo Grubers also stay in mind. Wasn’t a fan at first but bought them anyway, looked great one when you can’t see the multi coloured collar!!

    Pic not mine btw

    I was also trying to get a pair of the limited edition music anniversary collection Adidas did with Def Jam. The RUN DMC shelltoes!! Couldn’t get them unfortunately but used to sell for silly money on eBay.

    Quite like the recent Grenson x New Balance collab but cannot see me spending £300 on a pair of trainers anymore

    They are different but often they include a pair of city series, Manchesters for example last.

    I've got no idea when the next one is out TBH but I'll post anything I find out on this thread

    Anyone going for the Off White Jordan 1's tomorrow ?

  28. #128
    I think the only chance to get those now will be the Nike Snkrs app. All other stockists have already raffles them off.

    I've seen that Adidas have done another collab with CP Company, and they look really nice this time. The last ones in my opinion were awful.

    Due for release on either the 24th or 28th August, awaiting confirmation:-

    I like the Samba but I'll skip the Gazelle and those other monstrosities. Any idea on price? Bound to be too much

    Quite like those Gazelles. I'm sure they'll be a whole bunch of money, though.

    The Gazelle's are actually Tobacco, I quite like them, but never sure with sizing. As I've needed up to a full size larger with previous issues of Tobacco.

    There's also a navy version of the Samba, so grey and navy colourways to be released.

    Costs for the trainers, I've seen between £90 and £110 mentioned.

    id please

    Hi all...
    Been trying to identify my favourite old pair for a while now but drawing a blank on the internet so far. Any of you enthusiasts able to cast some light on these for me? I'm sure it was 2003 when I got them... The black sole used to come up over the front slightly ('new york' style) but has long since worn off.
    Thanks in advance guys - this is driving me insane!

    You didn’t keep the box and papers? Or did the AD keep them?

    They were made in the Pouchen Indonesian factory in July 2001. They are part of the Country range, style #659900, which are now obviously discontinued.

    The closet you'll probably get now is these -

    Edit - Pouchen, if you didn't already know, is the biggest footwear manufacturers in the world.

    I'm an adidas fan - driven mainly by 90's music, the simple look and football.

    I typically wear Gazelles and Dragons but also SL72's - I have a lovely pair of black Shell Toes with lots of tiny adidas logos over them, so cool but struggling to find them at the moment with a recent move.

    I have just picked up the following in the last week;
    - adidas DRAGONS (Red, UK 11) - Bought in Bahrain for a paltry £30
    - adidas DRAGONS (Black, UK 11) - Bought in Bahrain for a paltry £30
    - adidas JEANS (White / Green, UK 11) - 80s Casual Classics for £70

    Threw most of my old ones out before I knew about Refreshed-Kicks etc... incl. a gorgeous pair of beaten up Forest Hills and my first ever pair of blue Gazelles :(

    I am desperate for some adidas TOKIO's but they are so rare, even on eBay. If anyone can point me in the direction of some I'd be so grateful.

    Came across this as I looked for a site that would give me an idea of what some deadstock new boxed adidas trainers I want to shift would fetch in preparation of moving in with the future missus,..all black Santiago's,a pair white/light Blue Rom's,A pair of black adidas "city hike" boots.All size 9;5,and new with box/labels

    Also got a pair of Brown hiking/"gsg" type boots that were made in Yugoslavia and another pair of adidas monkey boot type from 1994 made in Slovenia ,adidas "all white" rom lookalikes(the wording on the trainers) That I cannot fine any info on.(????)

    I have far too many adidas originals trainers that I will never wear (probably 40-50 pairs),had some "Daley Thompsons" that were fairly rare but at least I found a bit of info on those,unlike some of the above.

    If anyone could point me to a Adidas deadstock website where I could do a bit of research about the boots it would be greatly appreciated !!

    I'm always on the lookout for some SL72's but can't seem to find them with the white trim around the laces which I think they originally had?

    just had a quick google there, and no images popped up matching what you describe. are you sure it was 72? are you sure it wasn't 76?

    Did you get them in the end?

    I didn't bother with the queueing. Know lads who queued for a couple of nights, and they're rough now from it, but managed to pick them up.

    Going to give it a go online on Friday morning. Just never know with Size? releases.
