If you hail from outside Europe, there’s a good chance you don’t know much about handball.
For many, the only exposure they have to the fast-paced sport comes with the occasional channel flip during the Olympics. However, it remains one of the most popular sports in Central Europe, so it figures that adidas have some obscure archival sneakers that were designed for the game.
One such shoe is the adidas Handball Top, a friendly looking low-cut design with a light gum sole. Accents of red and blue give the white leather upper a lighthearted appearance, like something you might find at the bottom of a box that contains your childhood curios.
