Adidas Originals and Craig Green unveil new Squash style

Remember the Adidas 1988 Squash performance shoe? If not, the German sportswear giant’s Originals brand has teamed up with designer Craig Green to debut the updated CG Squash Polta AKH “a new style that’s a tribute to Adidas design heritage”. 

The recreation of a performance shoe “built for swift and nimble movement” sees Green “reconsider the shoe for the 21st century using a transparent mesh upper, exposing and celebrating the shoe’s integral layers”.

The shoe’s internal construction is revealed both with a transparent upper, plus a cutaway outsole to show the foam midsole, “revealing the industrial colours that are usually left hidden, through exposing them and keeping them in their raw form”. 

It’s a fresh take on the ghost layers that are a signature of Green’s work with Adidas Originals, the company said. The shoe will be available from 27 July.

The transparent upper is printed with the Adidas 3-Stripes, “creating different transparencies where it crosses with the internal construction”. Also exposed is the inner canvas, which has been printed with the 1988 serial number of the original shoe design, ‘F.6314b Squash’. 

Suede trim around the outer sole, as well as a perforated tongue, “maintain a design dialogue with the original shoe”.

Green has also created new laces for the style, combining three fine laces joined together at the tip, “evoking the spirit of the 3-Stripes”. 

There’s also Craig Green and Adidas branding just below the heel collar and on the tongue, as well as the classic Adidas Trefoil badge on the side of the outsole.
