adidas Originals Dragon OG Unisex Sneaker

A unisex, vintage running style sneaker, the Dragon OG is designed for everyday wear. Perhaps one of the more overlooked classics in the adidas repertoire, the retro Dragon is a little flatter and lighter than the other classics adidas are known for – shoes which often have a thicker, more cushioned sole and heavier upper lining. Originally developed in ‘71 by adidas Germany, predominantly aimed at the USA market, the adidas Dragon was one of the brand’s first nylon running shoes, alongside the Trimm-Master and SL72.

The original version of the trainer didn’t feature the iconic T overlay on the toe, but was rejuvenated in ‘76 to feature a rubber toe bumper thus becoming the Dragon silhouette that we recognize today.

The silhouette was adopted by reggae artists and stalwarts of the ‘70’s American rock ‘n roll culture who gravitated towards the Dragon’s classic shape. Its athletic inspiration and incorporation of the scarcely seen adidas box logo, on a mixed upper of suede and canvas mesh, ensured that the Dragon would go on to become an adidas icon.
