The adidas Originals Marathon 85 is based on an archive prototype that never actually made it to retail. Imagined in the mid-80s, designers were looking to create a shoe that was light, yet hard-wearing. Now, the archive version of this forgotten prototype finally gets its time to shine.
For the Fall/Winter '13 Collection, the Marathon 85 will be available in orange, navy and green colorways. Each pair features suede over and underlays, reflective 3-Stripes and heel patch, a nylon tongue and pre-aged yellow outsole.
Look for these three styles at adidas.com/originals and adidas Originals retailers in the weeks ahead.
