adidas Originals has released its latest shoe, the Continental 80, as part of its ongoing “YUNG” series. The archival shoe was originally released in the late 1980s — hence the name — and gained popularity lately because of its similarity to the YEEZY Powerphase sneaker.

A one-for-one reproduction of the original shoe, it uses a grain leather upper with perforations on the toe box and to the side. The key detail is blue and red trim detail to the side. Take a look through the gallery above to see the adidas Originals Continental 80.

In related news, the YEEZY BOOST 700 wave runner received a release date. The new colorway is the latest one from the brand and comes in mauve.
