The adidas Originals Trefoil: Melbourne’s Community Canvas

Cool Sh*t, Melbourne / 25 October 2023

A Milestone and a Movement

The adidas Trefoil isn’t just a logo; it’s a cultural icon. Since its unveiling 50 years ago, it has crossed tracks and stages alike. Now, adidas pays homage to those who’ve kept the Trefoil at the heart of culture. In the campaign, “We Gave the World an Original. You Gave Us a Thousand Back,” the brand celebrates icons and communities. After starting on a global scale, the focus zooms in on Melbourne, a city rich in culture and community spirit.

Originality in Melbourne’s Veins

Adidas Originals joins hands with local community staples to narrate the Trefoil’s story. These collaborations are far from ordinary. They reflect Melbourne’s soul and offer unique experiences that bring people together. Let’s delve into these vibrant collaborations taking place across iconic Melbourne venues.
