adidas Originals Team GB Collection: 1984 L.A Olympics

We take a look at some 80’s adidas Olympic-wear making its way back in a big sporting year for Team Great Britain. 6 pieces of kit and four styles of footwear, this collection is heavy on nostalgia. Perfect for any child of the 80’s. If you hear the name ‘Fatima Whitbread’ and don’t immediately think of ‘I’m a celebrity get me out of here’ then this might be one for you.

“Los Angeles 1984 and Daley Thompson, Sebastian Coe and Tessa Sanderson all took Olympic gold for their country. In a nostalgic nod to the past, adidas Originals present an Archive collection that takes direct inspiration from the original pieces worn by those heroes, with Daley Thompson’s decathlon-winning #398 jersey the centre-piece.” Available from February
