    SL 72 Vintage Shoes

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Light, breathable and really tough! I've had these with me every day for nearly 17 months traveling around stuffed in my back pack in different countries/terrains/climates for my job. I usually pack several different pairs for different purposes, But I've always wanted a light but tough retro running shoe, but accepted it was probably impossible. However, this unusually breathable upper mixed with a classic sturdy eva retro midsole/outsole is clearly the toughness secret you'd never find in a modern running shoe. I've run fast(ish) daily 1 mile sprints on grass/wet firm sand-not pavement (I need to get on 2 wheels for anything above 400m). So I'd genuinely recommend these as classic great value breathable all-rounders especially for those of you that only ever have 1 pair of sneaks at a time, really durable - you can bang them in a washing machine on a 30' tied up in a pillow case (saves unraveling the laces, to avoid machine drum-hole tangle nightmares) and they're fresh again! Seriously, these have been a decent investment for me. If you can live with the 'pre-knackered suede look' (until-we all pray, they release a 'full colour, white leather lace stay' non vintage version a'la Achill)) these are absolutely excellent! I've literally just ordered another pair. Ace! 21 January 2012
    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 SL 72 Vintage absolutely Fab pair of Trainers. Got these to replace the 2nd set of Chile '62 trainers which gave me great service Like the Rom Trainers you should move up Half size from the fit of the Chile '62 and they are spot on I would also say that the comfort is exceptionally Good !! 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
    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

    How to get the right fit

    First, don't measure your feet in the morning; feet often swell during the day due to heat and activity. For the best fit, measure your feet at the end of the day.

    To measure your shoe size follow these instructions:


    • 1. HEEL-TOE LENGTH

      Place a piece of paper on the floor with one end against a wall. Stand on the piece of paper with your heel against the wall. Mark the piece of paper where your toes end with a pencil.

      Measure from the end of the piece of paper to the mark you created with your pencil and compare the measurement to our sizing chart.


    Choose the right size

    That's easier said then done. Because, what do you do if you are in between two sizes?

    In this case it might be safest to go for the size up, rather than the size down. And you know what? You can just try them on at home.

    Not the right size? Don't worry! Return your items for free within 30 days. Your parcel will be picked up at home, work or wherever in the country you prefer. Check out our return policy for more details.
