Strength, sophistication, tenacity, depth—black is emblematic of a creator’s best qualities. When this timeless shoe color is combined with iconic and innovative silhouettes, something great happens. Men’s black adidas Originals shoes harness a quiet, edgy confidence that is unleashed each time you hit the streets.
CLASSIC AND MODERN BLACK SNEAKERS
Modeled after the design that debuted in the late 60s and quickly became an athletic staple, the black adidas Superstar still showcases its signature shell toe and a durable rubber cupsole. New classics like the black Nite Jogger are constructed with hi-vis accents to help you stand out after sundown. Pair progressive silhouettes like men’s black EQT runners or black adidas NMD shoes with track pants, jeans or joggers for a laid-back, elevated look. For a touch of retro inspiration, the men’s Continental 80 delivers on nostalgia with comfort and versatility in equal measure. Whatever your style, men’s black adidas Originals shoes showcase unrivaled comfort and innovative design rooted in over four decades of crafting sneakers for creators across the globe.
ADIDAS ARCHIVE: ORIGINALS SHOES
As sports and athletes began to influence mainstream culture in the mid-20th century, sport-specific sneakers started appearing in everyday streetwear for the first time ever. With the rise of iconic kicks like the now-famed adidas Superstar, the place of athletic footwear in broader culture was redefined. adidas embraced this shift by establishing the Originals category, marked by the iconic Trefoil logo and punctuated by the popularity of the Stan Smith shoe. Today adidas Originals shoes continue to inspire creators to express themselves wherever they go.
