Reintroduction of the Adidas SL 76

The Adidas SL76 trainers were introduced in 1976, just in time for the Montreal Olympic Games. This training footwear is the second installment in the Super Light series pioneered by the popular Adidas SL 72. Adidas Originals brought this beauty back while remaining faithful to its OG specs to reintroduce another archived model to the market.

The Adidas Originals SL 76 is made of lightweight and breathable materials on its upper with supportive and fashionable overlays. It also features serrated 3-Stripe branding on the side with a contrasting heel tab. Found on the underside is the rubber outsole that ensures superb traction. 

Adidas Originals SL 76 vs SL 72

Unlike the 72 version that uses regular eyelets, the 76 utilizes the D-shaped eyelet rings commonly dubbed as a ghilly-loop lacing system. With this genius design, you can quickly tighten the laces from top to bottom with just a quick pull on the laces. Also, the 76's has a thicker rubber toe-bumper, and its profile is more streamlined than the SL 72.
