The Return Of The Adidas Sabalo

The Return Of The Adidas Sabalo

The adidas Sabalo is an excellent choice for anyone looking to upgrade their sneaker collection or start one from scratch on a solid foot.

These baddies have seen a recent resurgence in popularity, and for a good reason. They are incredibly versatile and hardy ‒ perfect for everyday wear.



The curved lines of the shoe are reminiscent of the iconic fisheye lens that captures the world in a wide-angle, trippy perspective. This photographic style saw great popularity in the skateboarding scenes as it perfectly captures the sickest flips, tricks, and jumps in blown-up angles and vintage, gritty styles. These images still inspire this style to be worn today, not just by skaters anymore, but by everyone who still appreciates the raw essence of this scene.

What To Expect From This Iconic Style?

When we think of the Sabalo, we are very much reminded of the unmistakable retro style that is tried and true in the adidas track record.

Exceptionally comfortable for all-day-long activities, the sneaker features cushioned sock liners, grippy, flexible, Geoflex tread, durable suede uppers and premium quality lacing closures. Moreover, the low-cut offers even more comfort, ideal for any day's wear. After all, as a shoe that was first and foremost designed for the harsh conditions that skateboarding can present, you can wear yours confidently, knowing that they will withstand any trying conditions.

The New Emeralds

With an array of colour options available, you have the freedom to pick the vibe that suits you the best. If you haven't checked them out already, the new look on the block is the epic core black, cloud white, and emerald green combo.

The subtle shade of emerald makes these an easy pairing choice for anyone looking for a pop of colour that does not overwhelm. In fact, this cool-toned green is an ideal choice in any casual denim or tracksuit look or even for a dressier outfit comprised of chinos or slacks.



Back To Black But Far From Basic

Everyone needs a pair of all-black sneakers in their closet, and if you don't have yours yet, the Sabalos could be a perfect choice.

Still featuring the cool, curved edges of the emeralds, the black shoe's neutral aesthetic is the perfect pairing for any season. Match it with an all-white look, and you have taken an iconic shoe in all black and made it pop. Alternatively, they could be the star of the show in a bolder look featuring baggy or rolled jeans, a longer-length tee, and a baseball cap to channel that true '90s skater aesthetic.

Keep It Cool In Grey

Grey is a straightforward choice for an everyday sneaker as it leans toward warm and cool weather and looks fantastic with light or dark-coloured clothes. No matter which direction you go, your grey Sabalo will pop, making it the star of your outfit.

We love this option in a paired-down, minimalistic street look, opting for high-quality accoutrements. Think tailored chinos or slim-fit jeans, a black or gun metal grey shirt, maybe in corduroy for a vintage edge, and a matching grey beanie or cap.



The adidas Sabalo has had a recent revival, and we aren't surprised. This skater shoe is the perfect addition to any wardrobe, and its durable design guarantees it to last for many years to come.
