Originality is constant. It’s not a journey with a distance of thinking. It’s not a calculated and curated process. It’s off the cuff – and hesitancy is its biggest enemy. Campus has always been a genuine participant to the cultures that thrive within the city, maintaining street-level respect over the years.
Starting off on the basketball court back in the 80’s, Campus was released as an all round shoe built for sport. Later with the explosion of hip hop the classic suede low top formed part of a powerful moment in fashion that saw key styles being claimed from sport by the street.
Today adidas Originals brings back the iconic Campus. The 80’s base trimmed and tweaked, blending elements from the archive to create the ultimate silhouette.
Campus isn’t afraid of being itself – gritty, on edge and ever- present – recognised as a mark of raw authenticity by those who live life uncurated.
