There are subtle, yet important differences between the Europe-inspired shoe in comparison to the American-themed shoe. These shoes are slightly more understated—rather than a bright red upper, this version of the AM1 ’86 has the signature European yellow we’re accustomed to seeing. The yellow detailing is seen in the inner lining as well as on the heel tabs of the shoes. The European blue accents on the soles, heel tabs, and insoles of these shoes contrast well with the darker shade of blue on the swooshes. Similar to the other shoe, the star motif etched onto the toe cap is arranged in the European Union star pattern, which can also be found on the tongue of the shoe.
