30 years later: adidas Tahiti “Island Series”

You, nostalgics! The adidas Tahiti are back after many years out of the sneaker scene. It was in the early 80’s when adidas decided to release the “Island Series”, which included 3 models: Hawaii, Tahiti and Samoa.


Three decades later adidas surprises us with the reissue of this special model. The materials and colors are the same as on the original model, which gives the adidas Tahiti a completely vintage essence.


The upper of the sneakers is made of suede and comes in a soft blue inspired by the calm waters of the Pacific Ocean. This combination of materials and colours adds a retro feeling to this model.


The classic three stripes with the zig-zag edge are overlayed on the suede upper. They come in a brighter blue, also present on the laces and lining of the sneaker.


As a special detail, this model features the adidas trefoil on the tongue, together with the word “Tahiti”. The trefoil is also present on the insole along with the word “adidas”. This combination takes us back to the 80’s with just a look.


This is no doubt one of the most special reissues made by the brand of the three stripes. Are you willing to wait for another 30 years to get your hands on the adidas Tahiti? They are waiting for you at foot District :).
