Adidas Continental 80 Pride History

Initially released in the 1980s, the Adidas Continental was brought back by the Three Stripes brand to fit with today's vintage fashion trends. Due to its history, the sneaker was renamed as the Adidas Continental 80. It was released in the Yung series under the Adidas Originals label.

The shoe gained a lot of media attention due to its similarity to another highly popular model, the Adidas Yeezy Powerphase. Subsequently, the model's budget-friendly price tag had some fans clamoring for a pair, compared to the very expensive cost of the Yeezy sneaker.

With its continuing popularity, Adidas has released such fresh iterations as the Adidas Continental 80 Pride. It had a release date of June 1, 2019, and was included in the brand's Pride collection.

With its colorful stripe on the sides, the sneaker shows support for the LGBTQ community, proving that love knows no bounds. Wearers can wear their pride right on their feet with the Adidas Continental 80 Pride from the Adidas Originals line, showcasing their style at the same time.
