Throwing it back to the legendary era of the 1970s, adidas and Ajax celebrate the 50th anniversary of the three back-to-back Europa Cup wins - 1971, 1972 and 1973. Presenting a retro-inspired adidas Originals collection, adidas looked to the club's reign of the '70s paying tribute to the history-defining era with archival design references and vintage details.adidas
Featuring a football jersey, tracksuit, quarter zip top, two t-shirts and Samba footwear - the adidas Originals collection has everything you need to dress in head-to-toe Ajax greatness.adidas
The pièce de résistance of the capsule is, of course, the ‘bring back’ football jersey, dressed in the club's iconic colours of white/red/white. The shirt itself is made from time-authentic materials and places an oversized version of the historical Ajax crest in the middle of the jersey, as typical for that era. All other articles feature the adidas Originals logo, the historical Ajax crest, and Amsterdam’s three St. Andrews crosses.adidas
Reimaging the classic Samba silhouette - football's IT shoe of the moment - adidas opts for a crème-base, with features of red as the secondary colour, as well as black and gold details, and the outsole that defines a Samba.adidas
On closer inspection, details include the adidas Originals logo and historical Ajax crest on the tongue of the shoe, in reverse order on both tongues. The shoe also features Amsterdam’s St. Andrews crosses on the heel tab, key parts of the club anthem on the sock liner and the coordinates of former Ajax stadium ‘De Meer’ on the right collar lining of the shoe.
