adidas has an archive bigger than most. It’s stacked with classic sportswear silhouettes, iconic materials, and, as it turns out, some signature colorways, too. All of this is exemplified in the adidas Blue Version collection.
One of the most exciting developments from the Three Stripes, adidas Blue Version might be the brand’s most ambitious vision yet. The collection is dedicated to elevating classics from the extensive archive through a contemporary, fashion-forward lens. Blue Version — as the name suggests — centers around one of the brand’s most iconic colorways: Bluebird.
To bring your attention to the adidas Blue Version offering, we’ve rounded up 10 pieces that embody the drop’s approach.

Much of the Blue Version collection is at odds with adidas’ usual, sportswear-leaning approach. The Tie-Beak Jacket, for example, is one of a handful of lifestyle pieces that look beyond the functional to the aesthetic.
While the collection is a departure from adidas’ usual offering, you can be sure to find some staples left in there. Look for variations in color and texture, though, as the design seeks to redefine the classics.
At its core, this is just a basic pair of cargo pants — utilitarian yet stylish. But, it’s the little touches like tie fastenings to each ankle that add the Blue Version flourish.
Chile 62 Coat
Like something you’d expect from a luxury collaboration, the Chile 62 Coat is almost unrecognizable as an adidas garment, save for the tonal Three Stripes motifs down each arm.
One of adidas’ most popular designs ever is the Firebird tracksuit. This classic duet gets a high-end update as part of Blue Version with a tonal-black finish.
No, your eyes are not deceiving you: this is an adidas shearling jacket. The heavyweight winter coat again features minimal detailing in the form of black stripes to each arm.
Inspired by retro goalkeeper jerseys, this piece lands with the titular Bluebird hue to the bottom half of the design.
Chile 62 Pants
Cut to have massive flared legs, the Chile 62 track pants are a playful new style that carries big retro energy.
Tie-Break Polo Shirt
Tennis style continues to be one of the most versatile within sports. It’s why pieces like this polo shirt carry over into the everyday wardrobe so easily.
