A sneak peek at the outfit 5-time US Open champion Roger Federer will be wearing in New York:
Last month, adidas Originals announced that they would be reissuing Stefan Edberg’s tennis sneaker
Using the Stefan Edberg tennis shoe, first released in 1986, the “Strawberries and Cream” is a nod to the traditional Wimbledon desert.
The Edberg features a strawberry red suede upper, tonal Three Stripes branding, and a cream midsole with a matching terry cloth lining. There’s also Footpatrol branding on the tongue tab, heel, and inserts.
The Edberg ’86 “Strawberries & Cream” will launch this Saturday at Footpatrol, both in-store and online.

This signature model made for 2-time Wimbledon champion Stefan Edberg was first released in 1986. An extensive range of Edberg clothing and footwear was produced over the years.
The Edberg tennis shoe was made in France and had some great details like the signature Edberg logo on the perforated tongue, the green/yellow colorway and the green eyelets.
Below, a picture of the original adidas Edberg tennis shoes worn by the Swede when he won the 1988 Singles Championship (I took this picture at the Wimbledon museum where plenty of players memorabilia is exposed, read more here):
Can you spot the difference between the orginal and the reissue? The signature Edberg logo!
