HOME OF CLASSICS

The HOME OF CLASSICS sneakers are made with decades of experience but it’s people’s experiences that made them classic. And it wasn’t always athletes on court, it was everyday people using them to do things they weren’t intended for. For the newest addition to this classic series, the Supercourt, we’ll follow this journey – capturing raw and authentic moments of how kids mess these shoes up during a day in their lives. Shoes MADE WITH CARE, BUT WORN WITHOUT. 

Made for the court, adopted by the street.

INTRODUCING THE HOME OF CLASSICS 

The Home of Classics pack includes the most celebrated timeless style; the Supercourt, a shoe featuring design elements from the archive, for a new generation. A shoe inspired by an archive of classic sneakers that broke records and rules for generations. Worn-in adidas sneakers are made timeless by those who wear them and showcase how the shoes built with care, embody life experiences.

The Home of Classics pack is composed of shoes that don’t rely on high-tech features, but on the same simple and iconic building blocks: three stripes, white leather, and rubber. Headlining the pack are three new editions of the Supercourt – shoes inspired by an archive of classic sneakers that broke records and rules for generations. This Home of Classics launch also features all-time classics like the Stan Smith, Superstar 80s, Continental 80, Rivalry Lo, and A.R. Trainer – sneakers that reflect 50 years of expertise, culminated in a variety of iconic silhouettes. They’re shoes built with care and ready to make new experiences in, like those lived by young creators worldwide. 

The Home of Classics collection is inspired the brand’s 50 years of experience in sport and culture -and the collection is made up of 10 court inspired silhouettes. For over 50 years, adidas has led the way with white leather sneakers that transcend generations, style tribes, and cultures. Celebrating the enduring visual language of the adidas Originals court legacy, the Home of Classics collection pays tribute to its unmistakable heritage, bringing together 10 essential silhouettes, both archival and contemporary, in one collection. 

Originally created for the court, the adidas Originals icons of today started their journey as sporting innovations for the future. The Superstar sneaker, as the first low-top basketball shoe to feature an all-leather upper, was later adopted as a symbol of the rebellious spirit in hip-hop culture, each shoe in the Home of Classics offering has its own unique legacy. 

From the stage to the streets, global creatives have been drawn to the brand’s white leather sneakers and have used them as a blank canvas to carry them through their experiences. The story of the Home of Classics collection is not shaped by adidas Originals but by the athletes, musicians, designers, style icons, and youth cultures that have re-interpreted the iconic silhouettes for themselves. Embracing how far people have taken, and will take, the brand’s timeless designs, the Home of Classics collection sees cultural heritage brought to the present for a new generation.

The collection’s 10 distinct silhouettes all have direct ties to the court – featuring the Superstar shoe, Torsion Comp sneaker, Nizza Hi RF model, Continental 80 silhouette, A.R. Trainer sneaker, Stan Smith shoe, and Rivalry Lo model from the archive, and 3 contemporary additions to the adidas Originals roster, Supercourt sneaker, S.C. Premiere model, and Supercourt RX silhouette – each taking its aesthetic roots and elevating it to its most pinnacle form.

Built from premium white leathers, the silhouettes have all been designed to get better over time. Viewed as a whole, the collection is a documentation of some of adidas Originals’ most influential designs, and a testament to the timelessness of quality craftsmanship that provides longevity for the wearer, regardless of their choice of experience or expression.
