Returning from the adidas vaults again is the Halfshell 80s, which blends vintage on-court design with a modern casual aesthetic.  Originally designed for basketball players in the 1970's as a more flexible alternative to the fully shell-toed Superstar, the Halfshell is back again for Spring/Summer '14 in two colorways of navy and teal suede.  Each pair features the Three Stripes in white and a softly contrasting pastel inner lining, while a vintage off-white sole sits below.

Look for the SS14 Halfshell collection at select adidas Originals retailers on January 1, 2014.
