Tackle The Trail In Style With Adidas Consortium’s Nubuck FYW XTA Sneaker

May 11, 2020

Adidas doesn’t shy away from the creation of adventurous outdoor shoes, but for the brand’s premium offshoot, Consortium, the genre is relatively unexplored. So, when the company announced an upcoming release centered around the retro hiking silhouettes of old, we were all ears.

The Adidas Consortium FYW XTA arrives as its newest example, boasting a black nubuck/beige mesh construction. Upon closer inspection, it’s clear that the shoe draws inspiration from Adidas’ previous models, thanks to its notable EQT badges, insignias, and technical eye-stays, which help to secure the FYW’s tongue via durable black rope lacing. Elsewhere, pronounced lugs, a neoprene sock liner, and a traction-focused outsole provide adequate support for a variety of applications, including urban trekking, outdoor pursuits, and indoor leisure. To round things out, a mesh underlay has been implemented to promote adequate airflow and breathability, making the FYW XTA a viable companion for those balmy summer days.
