Adidas Campus 2 History

The Adidas Campus has been considered as the sibling of the iconic Superstar, Gazelle and Stan Smith. It was deemed to be underrated and has stayed low-key, calmly chilling in the background.

In the early 70s, Adidas released a hard court footwear named Tournament and was renamed as Campus in the 80s. During that time, the Pro Model and the Gazelle have been reigning the market. Over time, this low-top basketball shoe with vulcanized sole eventually crossed the lifestyle category.

In the 80s up to the 90s, hip-hop culture started to rule the scene. Bands like the Run DMC and the Beastie Boys were seen sporting the Campus which helped accelerate its fame in the lifestyle arena. Even during the production hiatus of the Campus in the market, the Beastie Boys still wore them throughout their career.

The Beastie Boys preferred the Campus over the more popular Gazelle. Because of their continuous endorsement, the group salvaged the Campus from oblivion via their “Check Your Head” album cover. Adidas decided to bring the Campus back to the market in the mid-90s.

Recently, the Adidas Originals rebooted this iconic profile. The Campus is back again in the market as fresh and better than ever. The Adidas Campus 2 is a lifestyle shoe that features soft suede with the iconic 3-Stripe and bulky rubber sole. Adidas updated it with better fit and a tad wider than the first released Campus.

Most wearers can be seen sporting this with jeans, joggers, shorts and even with their activewear. This trendy kick will inevitably never goes out of style.
