Say Konichiwa to Adidas Japan

The Adidas Japan was first introduced in the 1964 Tokyo Olympics and tagged as one of the Adidas' very first low-profile training silhouettes. After decades of absence from the scene, Adidas' most elusive pair of trainers returns. This time, as a part of the Adidas Originals' City Series.

What to expect from the Adidas Originals Japan

The Adidas Japan features a retro vibe brimming with style and character. It is painted with colors of the Japanese flag, blood red and stark white, and crafted with buttery-soft Kangaroo leather. This premium supple leather gives its wearers superb comfort the moment they slip this sneaker on their feet.

This pair also displays a plush suede toe and heel overlays and a classic green Adidas branding on the side for a perfect dose of old-school vibe. Meanwhile, this low-top model has a thin, leather heel pull tab that makes taking this pair on and off a breeze. Found down below is the lightweight, off-white rubber outsole that delivers ample traction and vintage style.
