The original Edberg was a signature shoe for Swedish tennis ace Stefan Edberg, launched a year after his first Grand Slam win at the Australian Open in 1985. Its colourway popped in a way that few tennis shoes did at the time, and ensured it became an enduringly sought-after style for sneakerheads around the world.
In 1990, the Edberg Comp was released, which channelled this same eye-catching approach to colour, backed up by the functional design considerations and premium materials that are a staple of the adidas approach to craft. The lawn-ready, brilliant white leather base is elevated through splashes of typical 90’s colours: from the deep purple, pinks and peach of the three stripes, to the royal blue accenting that appears most prominently on the heel and sole. The Torsion system provides flexible stability, while every stride is cushioned by the EVA midsole. The result is a shoe that allows the wearer to move form courtside to street with all the confidence of a Grand Slam winning pro.
