This month, adidas Originals takes inspiration from classic and contemporary contexts, presenting two distinctive silhouettes, the A.R. Trainer and SC Premiere models.

First up, the A.R. Trainer silhouette presents a refined take on an original ‘80s training shoe. Reimagining the ASC Trainer model from 1988, the shoe’s paneled construction and fluid lines offer a slightly updated expression of the era’s unique tennis aesthetic. Constructed from premium leather throughout, the shoe is finished off with an 80’s style multi-purpose training sole unit and trefoil logo branding throughout.

In contrast, the SC Premiere silhouette takes inspiration from similar roots to create a more fluid, modernized take on 40 years of the adidas court archive aesthetic. The shoe’s premium leather upper is countered by a rubber midsole with a contrast off-white outsole, while a contrast heel-tab and trefoil logo window on the lateral side completes the picture.

The A.R. Trainer (R1599) and SC Premiere (R2299) will be available on 24 January 2019 at selected adidas Originals stores and online at
