The adidas SL 72 was originally designed for athletes participating in the 1972 Olympics in Munich. The “Super Light” running shoe was the first release to feature the Trefoil logo. A later iteration was released in 1980. Both are making a comeback in a true to the classic re-release.

The SL 72 features a lightweight nylon upper with suede panels on the forefoot and heel for structure. Contrast white leather serrated 3-stripes mark and heel-tab complete the look, rounded off with tonal laces, an EVA rubber midsole and a durable sawtooth outsole.

The SL 80 takes its predecessor and gives it some stylistic and technical updates. The suede overlay panels are made larger, extending around the forefoot and toward the lacing system for greater structural support. The EVA midsole is also thickened for greater cushioning in vital areas, while the rubber outsole receives a new tooling, as well as a cap on the forefoot for hazard protection.

The SL 72 and SL 80 are available now worldwide in two colorways each. Check them out below.
