It’s hard to believe that this shoe was inspired by a retro running sneaker from the early ’90s. Knit uppers, nubuck overlays and a lightweight EVA midsole. There’s nothing retro about that.
Although the sneaker is based on a beloved retro model, it has quite evolved since. ADIDAS has made sure that everything has been upgraded to fit and perform better. What sorts of things have been improved?
The addition of knit uppers, for one – they don’t just add style, they add comfort and breathability. When combined with the Ortholite sockliner – which is featured on the latest ADIDAS EQT Cushion ADV – it makes for an incredible footwear experience.
This shoe has one feature that many others do not. It’s lined with French terrycloth – providing a 25-pecent four-way stretch and a smooth luxurious surface. Just look at the collar. That glistening texture is proof that it won’t wear out your socks over time.
The flexible plastic eyestay and eyelets extend the life of the laces. Your heel is protected thanks to layered suede paneling and a piece of shock-absorbing rubber. The ADIDAS EQT Cushion ADV sits on a white EVA midsole and a black rubber outsole.
