As part of the sought-after ‘City Series’, adidas Originals lands in Italy to celebrate the archived terrace shoe, the Triest, inspired by a port city of the same name. Adiheads and sneaker collectors know how much of a big deal this is, with the shoe originally releasing in 1978 and growing a huge cult following over time. We wanted to give the Triest the launch it deserves, using our Birmingham branch to host an event shop this Saturday (15/10/2022).
But first, let’s talk about the shoe itself. A perfect blend of coffee brown and neutral cream decorates the upper, which is crafted from premium leather and smooth synthetic paneling, accompanied by a lightweight synthetic tongue, crafted from recycled materials and featuring a classic printed Trefoil label. A textile lining keeps things breathable, whilst a gum rubber sole provides grip and compliments the overall colourway. You can never go wrong with a terrace-style shoe, working effortlessly with any style of bottoms whether going for a smart-casual or more dressed-down look.
For the launch event itself, we’re bringing a cup of Italian culture to Birmingham as our store transforms into a coffee shop, with barista-themed gold-leaf graphics in our windows and an authentic coffee van inside. The first to arrive will be lucky enough to receive a bag with limited edition coffee beans and other branded goodies, with hot drinks available from baristas throughout the day. Swing by to pick up a pair, or a coffee and a chat with the team.
The Triest is available online and in-store on the 15th of October, so set the date to avoid disappointment.
