The adidas Trimm Trab Returns To Liverpool With The City Rivalry Pack
The adidas Trimm Trab Liverpool trainer celebrates the North West cities’ blue and red football rivalry.
The adidas Trimm Trab model is an all time classic in the casual subculture, which is still considered to be one of the best selling adidas shoes. It was named after a German fitness programme and first introduced in Germany in 1975 with a popular casual 3 stripes look. The trainer was first brought to Liverpool from Germany by the legendary Wade Smith, a sportswear store owner, who shifted around 110,000 pairs throughout the 80’s era. This man certainly bounded a love and admiration to the adidas brand with his rare imports in the United Kingdom.

The global brand’s shoe was always made of high-quality materials. In the beginning, there were a dual-density polyurethane sole and a suede upper. Additionally, the release was lightweight and featured a ‘quick-pull’ lacing system which made the shoe even comfier on foot. The first production of the trainer consisted of a limited number of different colorways with the trademark 3 stripes on the side. The original silhouette of the adidas Trimm Trab was re-issued in 2004 due to the sheer volumes of requests from classic adidas fans.
The shoe now returns to its spiritual home – Liverpool, with the City Rivalry Pack. Just like Manchester, Liverpool is also divided by two football teams that are blue and red, with this exclusive 3 stripes drop looking to Anfield and the home of ‘The Reds’. Highlights include red suede uppers, white 3 stripes running down each side, Anfield Stadium co-ordinates to the inner ankle support and the iconic OG Trimm Trab chunky sole unit in white.
The adidas Trimm Trab Liverpool City Rivalry Pack trainer will be launching from adidas stockists worldwide including asphaltgold.de from Saturday 13th April 2019. In other recent news you can also check out our feature exploring how Wade Smith cashed in on the casuals, the scallies and the ravers.
