Adidas LA Trainer Black: Retro Style with Innovative Technology

The Adidas LA Trainer Black Relaunches at 80s Casual Classics

Adidas is a German sportswear manufacturer founded in 1949 in Herzogenaurach. They produce footwear, apparel, accessories and equipment for a wide range of sports. They also design and manufacture slide-style sandals.

Throughout the 80s classic running silhouettes like the Los Angeles trainer made their mark. They were endorsed by runners and even rock stars.


It doesn’t take being a runner to appreciate the legacy of this adidas trainer. Relaunching here at 80s Casual Classics with retro midsole plugs and OG colourways, this new version of the Los Angeles trainer brings a blend of suede and mesh for an easy-going style that will work equally well in the gym as it does out on the street.

One of the original styles that helped adidas gain clout during the 1984 Olympics, the LA trainer was a stand out feature in adidas’ ‘Spirit Of The Games’ campaign and is known for its innovative peg system cushioning. Unlike traditional running shoes, this was able to be adjusted based on the user’s foot weight and requirements for optimal support and comfort.

That peg system has been reworked and redesigned for this new model, which features a unique wavy aesthetic to the upper. It’s made from a breathable, flexible and durable ballistic nylon that is tough enough for hard training. It also feels great on the foot, with the woven material being comparable to Primeknit and Flyknit.

The reworked upper is also adorned with a variety of detailing, from two-tone laces to reflective 3D prints and debossed segments. This is what makes it feel special and premium while still remaining a trainer. They’re suitable for a wide range of training, from boxing to plyometrics, thanks to the grippy outer sole and flex in the forefoot.

It’s been a while since adidas has released a proper training shoe, with most of the models they’ve put out in that time being mostly running shoes in disguise. But now that they’ve sold Reebok, expect a return to the world of strength sports.

With a tonal black look and sleek touches of grey, this is the perfect way to add some adidas flair to your outfit. Plus, the woven fabric upper will keep your feet cool and comfortable even when you’re working up a sweat. The grippy outsole is designed with three adidas logos to keep you steady whatever the challenge is, whether that’s lifting heavy or just chilling with your squad.
