Adidas Queen

I am always searching for (to me) unknown models and the 
adidas archive is the perfect place for finding special gems and 
background information. I could spend years digging through 
these shelves without ever getting bored of this infinite treasure 
trove and I dearly miss the days when it was accessible online. 
At my last visit the archive management showed me this shoe 
for personal reference; The Adidas Queen. 
A hi-top indoor training shoe for women from 1987.
What a sweet gesture! Thank you guys, you really hit the nail 
on the head.

A visit at the Adidas Archive

When I visited Herzogenaurach to contribute to the 50 years of 
Superstar exhibition, I of course could not stop myself from also 
saying hello to the wonderful archive team.

I am sure it is not surprising that the Adidas archive is my favorite 

place to visit on the HQ campus and the ladies were so kind to 
put together a small selection of shoes I might like.
Here are some photos I shot in the holy halls.
