Adidas Indoor Super: 80s to today

The Indoor Super was initially released in the 80s by Adidas for the sport of squash, a highly popular racket-game then. 

It utilized nylon for the upper and reinforced with velour, featured a rounded toe box with perforations, and had a flexible rubber outsole that was specifically designed for indoor sports.

The Adidas Indoor Super enjoyed a hugely successful and long run, not only with fans of the racket game but also crossing boundaries into the fashion scene. The silhouette was considered a ‘must-have’ and wearing them with frayed jeans was marked as ‘cool.’

After years of enjoying prominence, the shoe was discontinued for a while before enjoying a brief reissue back in 2003 in limited numbers. The reissue kept most of the details of the original but instead utilized leather for the upper.

The shoe was released again in bigger numbers after that, much to the delight of fans of the shoe. It has also seen a few iterations since then.
