The Consortium LA Trainer was first created in 1984 by adidas to commemorate the start of the Los Angeles Olympics. The classic shoe featured an innovative Vario Shock-Absorption System with varying pegs that was intended to help athletes adjust the cushioning to complement the surface they ran on, running style and their weight. Although it was one of the final models to be showcased in the famed adidas City series, the Three Stripes recently reissued the popular LA Trainer for summer 2016.

The latest version is very much a carbon copy of the original, boasting a leather-suede upper and maintaining the OG colorway. It is also comprised of a technical fabric called Stockmayer mesh as well as metallic detailing. To further pay homage to its predecessor, the LA Trainer lacks adidas branding on its highest stripe.

Each pair is slated to release on August 7 and is available to purchase at select Consortium retailers.
