adidas Originals Strawberries and Cream

They are now back with two brand new colorways of the rejuvenated adidas Edberg ’86: the original version with a white leather base and signature green and yellow accents (but sadly no signature Edberg logo), and a purple suede “Wimbledon” edition.

Both models will be available at select adidas Originals stockists starting August 1.

Edberg 86 Strawberries and Cream

Last month, adidas Originals announced that they would be reissuing Stefan Edberg’s tennis sneaker

Footpatrol has partnered with adidas Originals to pay tribute to two-time Wimbledon champion Stefan Edberg.

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.

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):
