Adidas Kiel History
The Adidas name is synonymous with quality and comfort, and the Kiel delivers exactly that. It was initially released in 1972 during the Munich Olympic Games as a sailing shoe.
This new version is the first ever re-issue of the Kiel. Its grippy outsole makes it ideal for skate decks as it was on boat decks back then. It has kept its nautical round laces, breathable textile upper, and rubber toe bumper. The shoe released in a few colorways including black, collegiate navy, and dark grey.
Adidas Kiel Style
Pick out any clothing from your wardrobe, and the chances of it looking good with the Adidas Kiel is pretty high. The Kiel has that vintage look that never goes out of style.
The shoe looks great when paired with trousers, tan-colored chinos, and tracksuits and other sports wear. It can be worn with laces tucked inside or tied outside for casual and semi-casual outings.
Fit & Sizing
The Adidas Kiel comes in men’s sizes which range from 3.5 to 13 with half sizes offered. For those who are looking for a laidback and low-top sneaker with just enough hold, the fit of the Kiel deserves serious consideration.
The classic simplistic style of the Adidas Kiel is its most outstanding feature. Add to that its grippy, durable outsole that is as at home on a boat’s slippery deck as it is on a skateboard and you’ve got a perfect combination.
The vulcanized rubber outsole gives wearers excellent board control. The synthetic textile upper and lining allow the foot to breathe while the rubber toe gives it improved durability.
- The Kiel comes with spare laces.
- The seamless toe cap offers added protection and durability.
- There is adequate cushioning in the tongue and ankle collar for enhanced in-step feel.
- The shoe has a Kiel call out in the bottom part of the heel.
