Yes, another version of these is coming out. This time it’s the Adidas Athen trainers in Forest Green suede.
Whether they will be in short supply is anyone’s guess. The last reissue in white leather hung about for a bit, but past issues in red suede and the original blue suede were snapped up in minutes and ended up on eBay. To be on the safe side, expect them to sell quickly and be pleasantly surprised if they don’t.
The style is the same as the original 1968 shoe (or 1967 under its original Jaguar name). Or least, faithful to the slightly tweaked version that has developed over the years. So a Forest Green suede upper, white leather stripes and detailing, gold foil ‘Athen’ branding above the top stripe and the signature gum Odenwald midsole.
The Archive Athen will be available online and in size? stores on Friday 12th May (online is usually around 8am), with an asking price of £80.
