Adidas SL 72 Makes a Comeback in Its Original “Blue/Red” Colorway

December 11, 2023

The adidas SL 72 is a classic silhouette that was originally designed for athletes seeking peak performance in the 1970s. Over the years, it has become an iconic part of adidas’ archival history. In 2019, the SL 72 made a comeback with its original 1972 color blocking, and now it is available in an elevated construction with a Brazil-inspired design.

The SL 72 features a low top silhouette with a lightweight nylon base layer and luxurious suede panels on the mudguard, quarter, and heel counter. The iconic 3-Stripes are stamped onto the profile for a touch of nostalgia. Additionally, the shoe boasts smooth leather heel tabs and a textured tongue that adds to its classic appeal. The standout feature of the SL 72 is the regal addition of the silhouette’s name embossed into the base layer in a golden metallic finish.

The upcoming pack includes the beloved blue and red colorway that energized the market over 50 years ago, but with an added gum tread. Another option in the pack is a vibrant green and yellow ensemble. Both colorways showcase the timeless style of the SL 72 and pay homage to its rich heritage.

The adidas SL 72 pack is set to release overseas on December 15th. While there is currently no news on a stateside release, detailed imagery of both pairs can be seen online. Sneaker enthusiasts and adidas fans can keep an eye out for updates on availability in their region.
