The silhouette is from a release in the early nineties that come from the Adidas EQT line, which broke away from the norm of shoes going all gaga with fanciness. The line just focused on what’s essential and functional.

On the outsole, the model makes use of the proprietary torsion system that has been with Adidas since the late 1980s. This technology allows for a smoother heel-to-toe transition.

Finally, the shoe has the Boost technology on the midsole. This technology, which was introduced to the market in 2013, is said to be one of the most comfortable cushioning systems available today. In fact, many industry analysts say that it was the Boost that saved Adidas from its sales pitfalls by making the company’s products a lot more relevant to the market that is becoming more and more performance conscious.
