Just like the Samba, the Gazelle and the Stan Smith before it, the Campus is just one of them easily recognisable adidas trainer styles. Relatively simple in design yet so iconic at the same time. Whereas the Samba and the Gazelle were focused on football training, and the Stan Smith on tennis, the Campus was designed for the basketball court. Originally called the Tournament trainer, the Campus first made its mark in the early 80s when basketball was big business and trainer sales were booming.

PUMA had already given us the Suede, Nike introduced the Air Force 1 in 1982 and adidas introduced the Campus in 1980. To the everyday person the Campus adidas sneakers release 2021 could have quite easily been mistaken for its older the sibling, the Gazelle, however there are some notable differences. The toe vamp of the Campus didn’t feature the T-toe detailing that the Gazelle did, and more importantly the Campus featured a chunkier sole unit. The overall look, shape and feel of the Campus and the Gazelle however are very similar indeed.

The adidasCampus had already earned its stripes from a performance perspective on the basketball courts, but it was the hip hop connection that really gave the Campus its icon status it holds today. adidas and adidas campus 80s womens hip hop culture went hand in hand. Run DMC pioneered 3 stripes, full tracksuits and the adidas Superstar. The New York born hip hop trio, the Beastie Boys, wore adidas Campus trainers. The Campus famously featured on the artwork for their 1992 album ‘Check Your Head’ as well as the single artwork for ‘No Sleep Till Brooklyn’ from 1987. The street connection of the shoe also saw it become a popular trainer for skaters throughout the 80s and 90s.

After they linked up with high-end Italian racing bike manufacturer Colnago for a collab New Release at the end of 2018, they’ve now joined forces with Shanghai’s Forever Bicycle for a special take on the classic adidas Campus. Known for their modernized versions of traditional bikes ridden by Chinese postal workers, Forever has imparted their conventional-yet-modern look onto the Campus, adding just enough special details while making sure the style stays as classic as possible. The upper uses a black suede as the base, while an embroidered white bicycle appears on the lateral heel and the same graphic is printed in red on the laces and insole.
