Are you sick and tired of Christmas shopping already? Is your festive cheer about as dead as a door nail? Don’t worry Scrooge – we’ve got just the remedy! Say bah Hamburg to them all and look after number one.

In other words, treat yourself to some spanking new trainers.

All we really want for Christmas is to raid the adidas archives, it’s our favourite pastime. Well, it looks like the big man has us on the nice list because he’s bringing us a pair of the freshly re-released adidas Originals Hamburg.

Originally part of the City Series – yeah, you guessed it, a pack featuring silhouettes named after famous cities; the Hamburg was released in 1978. Billed as an indoor training shoe, it quickly became an iconic style. It really found its home on the football terraces as one of the casuals’ favourites, and is now a coveted collectors’ piece.

2014 has seen the hugely popular silhouette make a welcome comeback in a number of colourways, much to the delight of sneakerheads and people who enjoy trainers everywhere.

Like most adidas silhouettes, the Hamburg has a few notable features that made it a stand out shoe. The new releases stay true to the original and feature the translucent sole, with its interesting grooves and the T shape toe that give the Hamburg its stand out look.

The winter release sees two new colourways drop – the yellow and black, and the black and orange. Equally strong looks and definitely worth adding to the collection. Which one will you go for?
