The Adidas 10K Casual is made available in both genders’ sizing. The shoes fit true to size so it is recommended to get a pair on one’s usual shoe size. 

In addition, the lace-up closure on this pair can be adjusted to one’s fitting preference for a more personalized fit. The textile lining and sockliner are responsible for the comfort that the sneakers elicit. With a die-cut EVA midsole, the Adidas 10K Casual is provided with lightweight cushioning to cater to one’s all-day hustle.  

This low-cut running-inspired sneaker keeps everything light and in stride and can always make one’s everyday look extra. 10K’s sporty silhouette features a mesh upper with smooth suede overlays that adds to that sporty and retro look. With the seamless 3-stripes branding, the embossed and perforated details complete the overall look of the upper.

Sneaker fans will have several colorways to choose from which are Blue, White, and Navy and some other new color combinations. This athlete-inspired sneaker can be styled in both ways. If one wants to go for a sporty look, a pair of leggings, sports shorts or one’s favorite athletic attire can do the trick. When going for a casual getup, one can match this sneaker with a pair of skinny pants, shorts or plain T-shirts, topping the look off with a cap.

The Ethyl Vinyl Acetate cushioning in the midsole of the Adidas 10K Casual provides comfort and the lightweight quality of the shoes, that makes it one of the best features of the pair. With a comfortable textile lining and sockliner, these add to the shoe’s additional comfort experience. There is a large TPU heel clip with the embossed Adidas wordmark. The grippy, rubber outsole offers superior traction. Moreover, the bright heel clip and matching laces add that spirited attitude.

Adolf ‘’Adi”Dassler and Rudolph “Rudi” Dassler, sons of a cobbler, invented spiked shoes for track and field. Four years later Adi and his brother Rudi founded the German sports shoe company Dassler Brothers Shoe Factory in 1920—later known as Adidas. In the later years, the brothers improved their footwear products by using those that are made from the few materials available in the difficult post-war period, which was mostly produced from canvas on the upper and rubber on the sole to further enhance quality. But, because of some disagreements, the brothers parted ways to form two different companies, Adidas and Puma.

Adidas soared high and the breakthrough came for Adi Dassler when Germany won the Soccer World Cup in 1954, wherein the German team wore boots with screw-in studs made by him. With rapid developments in sports, Adi Dassler was driven to specialize and optimize his products. He then started using well-known athletes in advertising his products namely Jesse Owens, Muhammad Ali, Max Schmeling, Sepp Herberger, Franz Beckenbauer, and many others. Adidas has tripled its sales in a year and since then, the company gained the utmost attention globally. Throughout the years, Adidas continuously improves and produces quality footwear and sportswear that are admired and praised for their high demands worldwide.  

Among all the other shoes that Adidas has released and will soon release in the future, the Adidas 10K Casual is one of the brand’s running-inspired footwear that is both a mixture of retro and contemporary designs. This shoe is composed of premium materials that make up for its excellent quality. Although it’s part of the Running collection, the pair is recommended for casual wear. These are truly cream of the crop classics.

  • The heel area of the shoe is well-supported while walking. 
  • Its outer sole is quite grippy
