Adidas Hamburg: A historical achievement

The Hamburg was launched in 1982 as a part of the "City Series." For several decades, the Adidas Hamburg was significantly associated with a wide range of tastes and subcultures. This shoe became notable as it was associated with the European soccer-casual movement during that era. This shoe features the iconic T-Toe suede overlay and the grooved sole side panels.

In 2014, the Hamburg returned to the market bearing the same classic profile with much attention to the fine details. It has a premium suede upper with a translucent gum rubber outsole and the iconic Adidas Three Stripes.

This shoe is an unwavering staple in the men's fashion collection. After all these years, the Hamburg retained its enigmatic vibe and is still perceived as a shoe with a great sense of expertise.
