Adidas SL 72 was introduced as a lightweight running sneaker and was designed especially for the 1972 Olympics in Munich. It was the first running sneaker of it's SL "family" (SL stands for super light), followed by the SL 76 and SL 80 some years later.

The upper of the shoe is a combination of breathable nylon mesh and suede. Additional features like the sole custody, the integrated heel counter as well as the toe cap are perfect to cope with the everyday life.

In 2004, 32 years after the first introduction of the adidas SL 72, the sneaker was reissued. Since then, it's one of the must haves for every sneaker shop.
