Adidas Iniki Runner Style
The Adidas Iniki Runner is a combination of both old and new. Though originally designed as a running shoe, its whole retro look proves its versatility. The shoe can be a perfect choice for street style finish when going out with friends or having a casual stroll around the city or town. It goes well with a pair of jeans, joggers, or jogger jeans. The shoe fairly goes with different kinds of casual outfit.
Adidas Iniki Runner History
The Adidas Iniki Runner is a fresh silhouette from the Adidas brand but it took inspiration from the classic running shoes of Adidas. Digging through their 1970s archive, the brand was able to give an image to the new silhouette. Combining both the vintage look and the modern technology they were able to create an advanced retro shoe.
A bunch of colorways were released for the shoe including one called “Pride of the 70s” that was released in April 2017. The clean colorway features a combination of both white and off-white upper with the Three Stripes and part of the heel in blue. The look of the shoe was finished with a Core Red outsole.
There were also some collaborative releases of the silhouette. One was the Neighborhood x Adidas Iniki Runner. The collaborative release between the Japanese streetwear brand and Adidas showcases a rather simple appeal. A breathable Primeknit base with some hints of suede in an all-black cover the shoe with an “NBHD” and “BRGD” which stands for “Neighborhood Brigade” printed in white at the heel.
Adidas then teamed up with END and Bodega and released the END x BODEGA x Adidas Consortium Exchange. This collaborative release with the two retailers was the latest addition to the Adidas Consortium Exchange, a program created by the brand this year, 2017, that a number of the world’s most influential retailers are assigned to release a two-shoe pack in an outlined concept.
The two retailers gathered inspiration in designing the two silhouettes included in the END x BODEGA x Adidas Consortium Exchange from Adidas’ past. The creamy soft suede upper version of the Adidas Haven is a representation of the past year’s running technology, while the denim covered Adidas Iniki Runner features a more modern look. Influence from the Boro Denim and the Japanese Sashiko stitching method was also taken in designing the silhouettes.
Some more other fresh colorways of the Adidas Iniki Runner were released, giving the people far more choices that would suit their tastes.
