ADIDAS ARCHIVE: ORIGINALS
As sports and athletes began to influence mainstream culture in the mid-20th century, sport-specific looks started appearing in everyday streetwear for the first time ever. With the cultural acceptance of sportswear in fashion fueled by hip-hop style, the role of sportswear was forever changed in the 1970s. adidas embraced this cultural shift by establishing the Originals category, marked by the iconic Trefoil logo and punctuated by the popularity of the Stan Smith shoe. Originals is focused on creating modern streetwear looks inspired by our deep sportswear heritage and classic, timeless designs.
