The low-top Adidas Falcon Zip trainers are available in women's sizing. The brand used a zip-up closure system with laces underneath for a snug fit.

Displaying a look that is highly suggestive of its running heritage, Adidas Originals Falcon Zip is another hot item to be included in the dad sneakers trend.

The Adidas Falcon Zip effortlessly flaunts a look from the 90s fashion. The brand was able to combine a familiar look and fresh element effectively and came up with high fashion footwear. Its retro profile with striking details on the upper and bulky midsole enhance this sneaker's street sensibility. Lastly, the twist on its closure system gives this pair an unexpected finish.

Adidas is in the zone of unearthing some of its classic silhouettes and revamping it for the current market. One of the most popular sneakers in the current market is the Adidas Falcon which was derived from the 1997 running footwear called Adidas Falcon Dorf.

Back then, the running team of Adidas had a hard time deciding what to name this silhouette. The brand finally decided to name its clunky classic footwear after the small town near the Adidas headquarters, the Falkendorf. To make it easier to remember, the brand internationalized it into Falcon Dorf.

Adidas Originals revived this footwear in 2018, transforming it into a female version using more refined details. The modernized version uses a chunky upper with a signature stout sole, a typical piece in the 90s fashion. The Adidas Falcon perfectly fits the dad sneaker craze for its bulky aesthetics. The brand offered it in a wide range of color schemes displaying bright color hues.

In June 2019, Adidas released a modern spin to the Falcon silhouette called Adidas Falcon Zip shoes. The brand concealed the classic lace-up with a distinctive front zipper, giving an unpredictable twist to this classic model. Adidas tapped Kiko Mizuhara, a renowned fashion model, to launch this model as part of the Out Loud collection.

  • The Adidas Falcon Zip sneakers have a textured rubber outsole that provides reliable grip on city pavements.
  • This model uses the Torsion system that bridges the front and back of the foot to move independently. This system delivers support and stability on the foot on various surfaces.
  • Branding can be seen on the tongue patch, heel counter, and side.
