An undying scene with a cult following, casuals will be happy to hear that 2017 is set to see the revival of some iconic silhouettes.
Kicking off in the late 70s, the terrace style began in football culture, taking its name from the pub terraces that footy fans would drink and socialise on before and after the game. Wearing high-end sportswear up top, terrace lads are known for being three stripes fanatics, and adidas has always been their trainer brand of choice.
The first terrace drop to hit Footasylum this year, the adidas Originals Dragon and Munchen have landed in a selection of smart colourways.
adidas Originals Dragon
First hitting shelves over 40 years ago, the Dragon was a popular lightweight running silhouette. Current editions feature a mixed mesh upper with suede detailing to toebox, heel and three stripes branding.
Now available in Core Black/White and Clear Brown/White, breathe some old school fire into your terrace trainer collection with a certified classic.
adidas Originals Munchen
Taking its name from the German city of Munich, the adidas Munchen was also launched in the late 70s. Removing the t-shaped suede toe panel that many other adidas terrace silhouettes share, this trainer has a more streamlined look that instantly sets it apart.
Now available in Black, Burgundy and Navy with a gum rubber sole, stay ahead of the game with the latest Munchen colourways.
Made for standing, not running, adidas have started the new year the way they mean to go on with terrace trainers. With loads of Gazelles, Hamburgs, Spezials and more set to release over the coming months, keep your eyes on The Lowdown for more terrace news as it happens.
