adidas Presents the Football Icons Collection

The Three Stripes have rolled back the years with their latest range.

March 1st 2023

Featuring throwback replica designs for some of its leading clubs and federations, adidas’ ‘Icons Collection’ has been made with retro lovers in mind.

Inspired by football from the ’90s, an era that enthralled a generation and defined style both on and off the pitch, the range delves into 11 teams’ most memorable football moments whilst unlocking stylish retro-inspired looks that blur the lines between performance and streetwear.

Taking huge influence from the Three Stripes’ Equipment era, the collection revives past classics and reimagines what some clubs might have looked like in the early ’90s had they worn adidas. Think: centralised branding, glossy finishing and ‘laid-back’, loose fits that find the balance between instantly-iconic and immediately wearable.

The 1990s kicked off with football’s biggest tournament on Italian soil, the World Cup, and adidas’ nod to one of the biggest eras in the beautiful game comes in the form of a reimagined Italian collection.

The shirt, jumper, shorts and sweatshirt celebrates centrally placed badges, diagonal stripes and block colours. Whilst Bayern Munich’s range is a total blast from the past, borrowing bold colours from Die Bayern’s Away shirts during the mid-90s.

Arsenal, Manchester United, Juventus, Real Madrid, Celtic and more feature in the latest collection, which is now available to purchase via adidas online and selected retailers.
