I was wondering if anyone call tell me what kind of shoes the band is wearing during most of their concerts in the 80's. The white ones with the small black stripes on the sides. They look like the throwback Adidas shoes that are being sold now. I'd like to get a pair if those are the ones.

n/m, I just had a closer look and they look like wrestling shoes to me, possibly still from Adidas.

I think there was a thread about the shoes a few months ago. Anyone care to dig it up?
Still, I don't know if they were Adidas or Pumas. Beats the hell outta me since I dont know squat about what's cool. PAH!

I remember someone once said here they are Adidas Samba shoes.
At least Freddie wore Puma shoes in early 80s but I think Adidas came in the picture in 1982.

He wore those quite often.
I love them, I think they're the coolest shoes ever. A friend of mine has them in black.
And I want to get them, too!

Adidas. Freddie wore Pumas in some '84 shows, too. Then came back to Adidas

1982 Nike
1984 Puma
1986 Adidas

I'd go so far as to say there was sponsorship involved.

I love them shoes! Never saw Roger or John wearing them though.

I think I saw Roger wearing them... not sure... I think it was in the Live at Wembley video when they're going on stage. Either that or when they're leaving the stage. Or was it Magic Years 3? But I'm quite sure I saw Roger wearing them too.
