  • Comfortable textile lining
  • Cushioned midsole for a comfortable stride
  • Upper, midsole and outsole for an aged look
  • Running-inspired outsole for maximum traction

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great vintage addition I found this on the web while I was purchasing the dragon for my husband. I am fan of vintage sneakers and when I saw this on the web I had to get it. Luckily, Adidas carry this model in small sizes. The sizing chart was very useful; it indicates that women's 7 is equivalent to 5.5 in men. So I order these in 5.5 along with dragon and it looks better in person. I am very much used to the walk with the flats so, to me, it runs just right, super comfortable (light weight) and stylish for walking. However, I think this is not made for the gym, running or any cross training purposes. Great buy with free shipping and return option. 23 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by HAPPY ONCE AGAIN ! Its been 33 years since I had a pair of my BLUE AND WHITE SL 72'S and SL 76'S. The last time I saw them, they were held toether with SUPER GLUE AND ELECTRICAL TAPE ! I had to bid farewell and retire them. It was like saying goodbye to an old friend. Thats all I wore back then. Now ! I have them (THE SL 72'S) again and Im totally estatic and have been since I got them. Now all I need are the SL 76'S and then I would probably lose my mind. ADIDAS !! IF YOUR READING THIS. PLEASE. PLEASE RE-RELEASE THE BLUE AND WHITE SL 76'S. ALOT OF PEOPLE OUT HERE STILL LOVE THOSE SHOES !! 29 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by vintage look and quality fit Great looking pair of adidas and you can't go wrong with the vintage look either. I found the fit to be spot on and the build quality is good as well. I liked these so much that I ordered a second pair as they look good on and are a very light pair of trainers as per the name SL "super light". I'd say my only issue would be that the tongue squeaks when walking but I think this is only due to them being new so once they are worn in a bit they should go Can't beat the original cw of the sl72 and I'll be getting the other cw's as well. You won't be disappointed if you buy a pair 13 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Step back in Time! 5-star classic A great shoe with 70's heritage. Living proof what Adidas did it right then AND now. A classic runner without the bulk and additional support of a cross-trainer. The fabrics and materials market a vintage look, but the striking blue and details are anything but washed out. Construction of materials is solid. Lots of toe-room, and a comfortable, supportive normal/narrow style. I found these great for casual cycling as a lightweight shoe and of course walking and some time on treadmill. I would recommend for the walk, run and good looks of it. 29 November 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Returned them, Very Poor Quality The positive: -Fabulous retro look, almost true to original. The negative: -Very cheaply built shoe. -Hard plastic tongue is very uncomfortable, will give you blisters where sewn to body of the shoe. -Runs on narrow side. Unfortunately I returned the shoes. They were impossible to wear even when just trying on due to plastic tongue. Ordered "Dragon" model, much better build and comfort. Those I recommend. I am a fan of Adidas so trust they will take note. A shame to get a horrible shoe while expecting a quality product. 15 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A good shoe that becomes great over time I saw a review that mentioned that the tongues are stiff. True. Give them a little time. They will become perfect. These SL-72 shoes seem to last forever, and are so light and form-fitting that they are like part of your own foot. They even look great for years. It is not recommended for suede, but I put leather conditioner on the suede reinforcements. You can even put color back into the suede with Sharpie markers after a few years. Thanks for bringing this great design back. Now, if only Adidas would build a Team Zissou shoe. 19 June 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 Alright purchase The SL 72 vintage shoe is a great lookin' shoe with it's vintage retro color from the 70's 80's. But was a little dissapointed in the arch, a little to narrow and not wider in the middle which made it a little to uncomfortable to wear and doesn't have the flat lookin' sole to it. A little different than the 80's version which I remember owning as a kid. Just have to get used to the fit. But overall glad to have. No regrets. 23 April 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by My search for SL72s is over I'm an original SL72 lover. Lived in them through high school and college. Sold them at the local mall. Been looking for them since I say other retro shoes coming back into stores. Likes: Comfort, support, weight, so so close to the original Bummers: Not the originals, tongue squeaks, blue suède not as blue, sole is not as pliable. Overall: Happy...wife says you look like a kid and kids say their cool and want their own... 10 October 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by vintage shoe is great for crossfit these shoes are light as a feather, the low heel is amazing for heavy lifts such as the deadlift, and power clean. the tongue squeeks a bit but once broken in, theses shoes will serve you well in any crossfit WOD. its also a great head turner just for walking around people stop me and ask where i got them, so not only will you look good in these shoes, you'll also look like a vintage beast in the gym, get these shoes. 04 November 2013

Wanted something retro and these Ooze that groovey 70s look. Go well with Jeans. a Must Have for any wardrobe Thanks Adidas 13 May 2013
