UPDATE: This Coca Cola x adidas Climacool 1 throwback was released stateside last month, and after the being put on ice for a moment, the shoe is set to for a European release. It's being reported that the shoe will be available on May 28 from adidas online, but in then the meantime, check out these images of the shoe in the wild taken by Packer Shoes.
The reinstatement of adidas' Cimacool 1 has been met with a great reception. The early 2000s model feels just far enough removed from the current sneaker climate to be met with mild nostalgia, and close enough for its tech to still be relevant. And, of course, it doesn't hurt that Foot Locker turned an ice cream truck into a shoe dispensary and drove it around NY giving 'Bluebirds' away for free.
Keeping with the nostalgic vibes, the Trefoil Team have brought back another Climacool creation from the early 2000s – their Coca Cola colab. The original shoe came out as part of the 2002 Soccer World Cup in the same red and gold as this shoe here. From what we can tell, the shoe is an honest retro and keeps all the same detailing as its OG, most notably the gold inner with a Coca Cola-branded football under the heel.
The Coca Cola x adidas Climacool 1 is selling out fast from Sneaker Politics.
