Adidas Originals Iniki Runner

Feb 24, 2017

One of our favorite things about the sneaker community is that while it is constantly forging ahead, developing new technologies and styles for their shoes, they never disregard great silhouettes just because they’re old. It is this kind of nuanced attitude that has made room for a shoe like the Adidas Originals Iniki Runner.

Announced just this week, this brand new shoe from the storied athletic brand features both a throwback style and contemporary tech baked right in. Boasting a paneled construction, suede toe caps, mid foot, and a two way stretch mesh along the medial, the entirety of the upper harkens back to the early days of running culture in the 1970s. You could practically see some mustachioed sprinter running down the track in these. What promises to set these sneakers apart from both its contemporaries and throwbacks, however, is the technology used in the mid and outsole. The shoe’s inclusion of the Boost midsole makes for an all-around comfortable fit and subtle but substantial shift in the look of the shoe. Prepare to see these around everywhere this summer. They’ll hit brick and mortar stores this weekend in New York, Miami Beach, L.A., and Aventura. [Purchase]
