Our verdict


Like the earliest retro-ed Ozweego, the Pure calls the attention of the entire room. If the stubby sole of shoes from the same tribe sparked curiosity, so does this version. But this Adidas sneaker went on the more playful route with its textures and colors this time around. Even the black-toned pair will make you pop at night. Style aside, the Adidas Ozweego Pure banks on its Adiprene cushioning for that comfy all-day ride.

Adidas Ozweego’s flashy brood

Time is on the side of bulky kicks that ruled in the 90s. This cultural zeitgeist is favorable for a former trainer like the Adidas Ozweego. Since this shoe took a retro spin in 2000, it's been getting the attention and love from fanatics who consider it the poor man’s Yeezy. Decades later, instead of doing a copycat of the OG, the Ozweego Pure comes out with a fresh twist, highlighting its distinct curves with bold contrasting colors.

Shock-absorbing sole

The standard foam unit used on the original Ozweego is leveled up so as the sneaker’s comfort benefits. Even with a thickset base, you’ll feel its impact-absorbing properties doing wonders to your feet, tendons, joints, and back.
