Adidas Deerupt S kicks come in men’s and women’s sizes. They contain a streamlined look that speaks of their running-inspired design.
The shoes hug the feet close and can feel somewhat tight. This is ideal if you love a snug fit, but if you want it to be a bit looser, an adjustment in sizes might be necessary.
The placement of the laces can be quite confusing for some, especially with the extremely long length that some fixed by wrapping the laces around their ankles. But the laces and the shoes’ design keep the feet securely locked down.
These are contemporary shoes that are an interpretation of today’s running style. The design is minimalistic, only set off by the texture and brilliant color combinations. The wave and net patterns combine together to give the shoes a dynamic look.
Because of the casual tone of the shoes, they’re best paired with jeans, shorts, joggers, and all other kinds of casual clothing.
Adidas Deerupt S colorways include white/black, cloud white/active purple, core black/clear orange/ftwr white, black/ftwr white/mint, and more.
Deerupt S shoes contain a speedy look that is equaled by their function. The sneakers are not only excellent for casual wear, but they’re also quite dependable when used on long walks or for running. These kicks are meant to be taken with you wherever you go because the shoes have a neat, collapsible construction for no-fuss packing.
The shoes also contain OrthoLite sockliners which keep the feet cool and dry for a sweat-free experience.
Adidas has a habit of dipping into its archives for inspiration for its new models. In 2018, it did it again by introducing the Deerupt Runner model.
Deerupt Runners feature a webbing that encases the whole of the shoes. This very noticeable element was taken from a 70s midsole design called the grid, which Adidas first applied to their running shoes. This net-like theme was used by the brand to provide stability to all of its athletic footwear back then.
For 2018, the net was simply used as a design tool to add a bit of texture to an otherwise minimalistic modern running style. It also further served to provide a color contrast against the base of the shoes.
A year after, on Feb 28, 2019, an updated version was launched by Adidas. Called the Deerupt S or sometimes, Deerupt S Runner, this new model carries the same grid webbing that Deerupt shoes have although the profile has been changed to resemble that of Pharrell Williams’ Hu NMD kicks.
The lacing pattern of the shoes also closely follows that of the Hu NMDs, but instead of the TPU cage, the laces are attached to the mesh netting and go straight into the shoes.
A wave pattern was also thrown in on the sides for an added dynamic effect.
