This month The Sneaker Drop: adidas EQT. adidas is back with a bang, well, they never quite left but with the brand focusing on evolving the EQT range it will sure be another great year for adidas. The brand new silhouette goes back to its roots from 1991 when the Air Jordan 1 designer, Peter Moore joined the team and brought adidas back from the brink of bankruptcy by designing a shoe with ‘’everything that’s essential. Nothing that’s not.’’
With the new launch, a few changes were made – the introduction of brand new colourways – featuring pallets of red, pink, white and pixilated black. Following that, adidas have also changed things up a bit by bringing back the old school Trefoil to carry on the sneaker’s classic silhouette.
The futuristic design of the upper consists of a digi-camo like patterned primeknit which is supported by the plastic cage that is a reoccurring design from the historical models. The tongue of the shoe features a Burrito construction, as well as the Trefoil which is stitched alongside the numbers 91-17 that represents the birth of this iconic model. The bright pink external heel cage makes an eye catching statement that’s makes the shoe stand out as a whole. OrthoLight insole is very comfortable and features another splash of bright colour that is green. The midsole of the sneaker has more boost than ever before and it’s certainly felt when on foot, in addition the 3-Stripes make an appearance as they are cut out of the boost. The rubber outsole provides substantial amount of grip in wet and dry conditions.
Of course our Illustrator @cam_.xv made an illustration of the adidas EQT for this Sneaker Drop.
