Adidas Campus 80s: A laid-back legend

Apart from Adidas Stan Smith and Adidas Superstar, the Adidas Campus 80s is one of the brand's most iconic silhouettes in its arsenal. It was initially released in the 80s as basketball footwear. Because of its straightforward yet fashionable style, this sneaker quickly turned into the hottest footwear among the youth and rap groups. Moreover, its retro style takes some of the reviewers back to their childhood. 

A few years later, the Adidas Originals Campus 80s was used as the base model for several collaborations. Many brands saw the potential and how precious the style of the Campus 80s is and created their versions of this timeless sneaker. That said, with its style that lasted many generations, the Adidas Campus 80s is a real keeper.
