Looking to the past for inspiration, Adidas Originals recently kicked off Spring 2018 with the introduction of a retro-inspired silhouette called Deerupt sneaker.
The 1980s were a defining decade: personal computers first made their way into homes, Michael Jackson’s Thriller could be heard echoing across radio stations and boomboxes alike, while global superpowers redrew borders. It was during this decade adidas made their mark in the marathon world with the introduction of “Body Science” technology in their New York and Marathon Trainers, both later serving as inspiration for the Deerupt.
The Deerupt is a lightweight lifestyle sneaker designed to hug the foot and slip on like a sock. An internal Ortholite sockliner cushions the heel and ball of the foot, offering disruptively simple yet noticeable comfort with every step. The Deerupt’s unique webbed exterior stretches, bends, and molds with every twist and turn of the foot. It’s a comfortable shoe you’ll forget you’re even wearing.
Once designed to absorb shock caused by the impacts of running, adidas’ Body Science webbing sees new life as the legacy material is stretched from sole to ankle. Every thread builds on top of one another, forming an aesthetically pleasing mosaic of lines — sure to garner attention and turn heads.
