Who should buy the Adidas Berlin
This training Adidas sneaker is a good match for you if:
- You are after a low-top minimalist sneaker that matches any outfit
- You want sneakers with thin soles that allow flexible foot movement
Style of the Adidas Berlin
A simple low-top sneaker with minimal aesthetics, the Adidas Berlin features a two-tone blue suede upper and classic low-profile gum rubber outsole. The serrated Three Stripes are presented in contrasting and lighter blue tones, adjacent to an upside-down printed “Berlin” branding in gold foil. Wear it with shorts, slim-fitting jeans, or casual pants, and you're good to go.
Adidas Berlin has its way of making itself truly one of Adidas’ most iconic shoe models ever created. One feature that stands out is the unique upside-down “Berlin” text in gold foil that gives the Adidas Berlin its true identity.
History of the Adidas Berlin
Back in the late ‘70s towards the early ‘80s, Adidas released one of its most iconic series ever produced – the Adidas European City Series. The series includes 24 lifestyle shoes representing different cities throughout Europe such as London, Kopenhagen, Milano, Dublin, and Berlin among many others. Each of these shoes has its characteristics that highlight the city it typifies. Like the Adidas Stockholm, which mimics the Swedish national flag through its vivid colorway.
One of the silhouettes from the European City Series that recently received a re-issue version, under the Adidas Originals sub-brand, is the Adidas Berlin.
In February 2018, the classic Adidas Berlin trainers returned to the market in a limited reissue release. Launched as a part of the City Series reissue after its sister models, the London, the Bern, and the Dublin, this particular low-top sneaker came back with a slight tweak while retaining the Argentina and Sky Blue color palette.
Unlike in the original model, the 2018 reissue version displays the “Berlin” gold foil text in an upside-down fashion as a tribute to the first sample version of this shoe.
