Size and fit
These sneakers are available in men's and women's sizes. Both options are available in half sizes and standard width. The fit corresponds to the size, but if you have a wide foot, it is better to buy shoes half a size larger. The low fit of the LA Trainer almost does not restrict the movement of the legs. Traditional lacing adjusts the width and allows you to play with the design through lacing options. They fit perfectly on the leg.
Adidas LA Trainer style
Adidas LA Trainer is an absolute classic of the 80's, which has its own fans and a vast audience. Since then, several color solutions and interpretations have been released, but it all comes down to the fact that the design of this model is simple and stylish for any time. The combination of mesh and leather or suede contrasts with the three stripes on the sides. The sole is highlighted by the signature cushioning system on the heel, which functions not only for aesthetics, but also to provide excellent comfort and easy walking.
Over 30 years of production, Adidas LA Trainer has definitely stood the test of time and confirmed its cult status. Even after all these years, fans of the three-stripe brand can easily distinguish this retro classic from other modern low-top sneakers.
The most notable feature of the Adidas LA Trainer is the three adjustable removable caps on the heel, which mainly function for individual cushioning. The inscriptions were originally in red, blue,and white. The sole in recent releases varies depending on the color scheme.
Some color options represent heel caps in different colors. Another feature is the "LA Trainer" marking on the heel band, which was not present in the original model. It was added only in 1989, when production was moved to Eastern Europe (Yugoslavia, then Croatia) and Asia.
The history of the Adidas LA Trainer
In 1984, Adidas introduced a revolutionary Shoe in honor of the summer Olympic games in Los Angeles. Named as the Adidas LA Trainer, these were the first Adidas sneakers equipped with the Vario cushioning system, better known as removable tricolor caps.
Presented in different colors: white, red, and blue – each plug has different levels of cushioning that can be adjusted depending on the user's weight, running style, or type of surface used. The Vario cushioning system was a successful Adidas technology experiment that was later used in other models such as the Kegler, Columbia, and Grand Slam. Thanks to this innovation and functional approach to design, Adidas LA Trainer eventually became one of the most recognizable and most iconic Adidas sneakers.
Even today, more than 30 years after its creation, LATrainer Adidas remains as relevant as ever and is a favorite among sneaker collectors and users of all ages.
Adidas LA Trainer features an OrthoLite sock for comfort.
The Adidas Trefoil logo is visible on the tongue and heel.
The upper consists of mesh and suede for breathability and durability.
The rubber sole has a scalloped rubber tread for optimal grip.
Several versions of LA Trainer were released, including LA Trainer Weave, LA Trainer Iridescent, LA Trainer Textile, and many others.
