The Adidas Tahiti is a trainer that is a part of the Adidas Island Series; the Island Series is a range of trainers, named after tropical islands, that is reissued periodically. Tahiti is a tropical island located in the Pacific Ocean; Tahiti is administrated by France; Tahitians are now French citizens that have unrestricted civil and political rights. French is the official language of Tahiti. The last reissue of the Adidas Tahiti is shown below: the trainer was released with a light blue and solid blue collegiate navy suede upper. The Tahiti flag is red and white, therefore, the colourway of the Adidas Tahiti is not inspired by any colour associated with the nation state of Tahiti. Unlike the trainers in the City Series - which feature a gold foil wordlogo next to the three stripe leather overlays - the only identifying feature of the Adidas Tahiti is the label stitched onto the tongue. The shoe has a basic classical design, with little in the way of foot cushioning or support; the shoe is designed for casualwear rather than sports performance. The Adidas Tahiti was originally released in 1982, therefore, the shoe is now a fashion accessory; modern Adidas footwear is far superior for sports participation.
