adidas Campus Sneakers and Trainers | The Drop Date

The adidas Campus

The clean lines and timeless appeal of the adidas Campus has cemented it as a favourite among sneaker fans since its arrival in the 1970s.
Designed for the basketball court but ultimately ending up on the streets, the Campus was originally known as the 'Rod Laver', and has evolved into a staple piece composed of premium leather and suede.
The Campus comes in two versions, the 80s and the 00s. While both are constructed for comfort and durability, the 80s reflects the OG design in leather and subtle branding, while the 00s bring the model up to date with bold colour palettes and increased cushioning.

adidas Campus Design

While the design of the Campus has evolved over the years through multiple colorways and textures, the model remains a symbol of enduring style and timeless appeal.
Its low-profile silhouette has given generations the freedom of self-expression, its ability to adapt to multiple cultures part of its huge popularity.
The plush suede upper is accentuated by adidas' signature three stripes, and rounded toebox calls back to its original basketball heritage. A thick rubber sole offers durability, flexibility and traction, while its padded tongue and collar enhance its comfort. The contrasting heel patch and traditional lace-up closure provide the finishing details to the classic model.

adidas Campus Subculture

The adidas Campus gained legendary status in the 1980s through its associations with icons like the Beastie Boys.
Later in the 90s, the model became a symbol of indie and grunge movements.
Its ability to adapt to and resonate with a wide variety of subcultures over the years has ensured that even today, the adidas Campus is an incredibly popular and trending sneaker.
