UPDATE: Official release info has finally come in for this 80s baby, and it's even been joined by a tonal opposite. Both light and dark options of the adidas BW Army will be marching into town on June 16 – pick them up from retailers like END.
The Three Stripe archive has produced a real gem from the 70s with the BW Army. For the past few years, the German Army Trainer-style has been a favourite of luxury brands attempting to invade the sneaker market, but it’s adidas who can lay claim as originator of the fashionable style, after military surplus stock flooded European streets in the mid-80s. The latest rendition offers an OG aesthetic with a white leather upper and off-white suede toe, while a gum sole provides an extra dose of classic flavour.
The adidas BW Army ‘White/Gum’ will be available soon from select stockists – keep an eye on Inflammable for the drop.
