Rated 5 out of 5 by Starsky76 Light, breathable and really tough!
I've had these with me every day for nearly 17 months traveling around stuffed in my back pack in different countries/terrains/climates for my job. I usually pack several different pairs for different purposes, But I've always wanted a light but tough retro running shoe, but accepted it was probably impossible.
However, this unusually breathable upper mixed with a classic sturdy eva retro midsole/outsole is clearly the toughness secret you'd never find in a modern running shoe. I've run fast(ish) daily 1 mile sprints on grass/wet firm sand-not pavement (I need to get on 2 wheels for anything above 400m). So I'd genuinely recommend these as classic great value breathable all-rounders especially for those of you that only ever have 1 pair of sneaks at a time, really durable - you can bang them in a washing machine on a 30' tied up in a pillow case (saves unraveling the laces, to avoid machine drum-hole tangle nightmares) and they're fresh again! Seriously, these have been a decent investment for me. If you can live with the 'pre-knackered suede look' (until-we all pray, they release a 'full colour, white leather lace stay' non vintage version a'la Achill)) these are absolutely excellent! I've literally just ordered another pair. Ace!

Rated 5 out of 5 by kikkoya Great vintage addition
I found this on the web while I was purchasing the dragon for my husband. I am fan of vintage sneakers and when I saw this on the web I had to get it. Luckily, Adidas carry this model in small sizes. The sizing chart was very useful; it indicates that women's 7 is equivalent to 5.5 in men. So I order these in 5.5 along with dragon and it looks better in person. I am very much used to the walk with the flats so, to me, it runs just right, super comfortable (light weight) and stylish for walking. However, I think this is not made for the gym, running or any cross training purposes. Great buy with free shipping and return option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 3 STRIPES RULE HAPPY ONCE AGAIN !
Its been 33 years since I had a pair of my BLUE AND WHITE SL 72'S and SL 76'S. The last time I saw them, they were held toether with SUPER GLUE AND ELECTRICAL TAPE ! I had to bid farewell and retire them. It was like saying goodbye to an old friend. Thats all I wore back then. Now ! I have them (THE SL 72'S) again and Im totally estatic and have been since I got them. Now all I need are the SL 76'S and then I would probably lose my mind. ADIDAS !! IF YOUR READING THIS. PLEASE. PLEASE RE-RELEASE THE BLUE AND WHITE SL 76'S. ALOT OF PEOPLE OUT HERE STILL LOVE THOSE SHOES !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1twoMic Step back in Time! 5-star classic
A great shoe with 70's heritage. Living proof what Adidas did it right then AND now. A classic runner without the bulk and additional support of a cross-trainer. The fabrics and materials market a vintage look, but the striking blue and details are anything but washed out. Construction of materials is solid.
Lots of toe-room, and a comfortable, supportive normal/narrow style. I found these great for casual cycling as a lightweight shoe and of course walking and some time on treadmill.
I would recommend for the walk, run and good looks of it.
