Size and fit

The Adidas Ozweego TR has suede overlays and slightly looks like a sneaker boot. Because of its sock-like mesh upper construction, the shoe’s overall grip is exceptional. The lace closure, that includes tubing eyelet stay, allows a customizable fit. 

This shoe is available for men and women yet gets quite roomy for slim feet so a pair of thicker socks are suitable.

Adidas Ozweego TR Style

Reshaped from the 1998 Ozweego version, this model features razor razor-sharp lines, a zigzag midsole,  a see-through tube on the eyelet stay. Leisure-suit joggers surely love the trendy style of the Adidas Ozweego TR shoe.

The shoe’s heel wedge and sharp toe stand out, delivering an unconventional, modern design. Get compliments when wearing this fantastic everyday sneaker by sporting it with a shirt, hoodies, pants, and shorts for a casual staple. It also looks good when matched with tattered jeans for a grunge appearance. 

Its trace khaki with gum 5 outsole colorway, for example, makes an excellent shoe choice of many wearers for a fresh and cool character due to its head-turner, bright hue. The off white with the grey outsole is ideal for a streetwear kick paired with deeper shades of clothing. A pair of joggers can even look cool when blended with the core black with off white outsole colorway.

Notable Features

One of the best features of the Adidas Ozweego TR is the Adiprene and Adiprene+ cushioning and sole support. It also displays a leather tongue which is very unique for its suede upper. The classic torsion system to this footwear delivers flexibility and stability, and a see-through tube on the eyestay marks its signature.

Adidas Ozweego TR History

Having conquered the world of sports, Adidas founder’s mission has been passed on, to never stop in providing athletes with the best possible equipment to win big. In 1986, the concept of merging arts and sports shaped up that led to the promotion of non-athletic promotions in the footwear industry.

As decades passed, its innovation continued and eventually, the shift to focus on sports-inspired streetwear happened. 

It was in July of 1996 that Adidas introduced the original Ozweego, a lightweight running shoe that sport an Adiprene cushioning technology and torsion sole support. In 1997, its successors follow like the Ozweego 2 that is made with a slightly modernized upper and same cushy Adiprene in the forefoot. 

Ozweego 3 was presented with the addition of Torsion in the midsole, a more breathable mesh construction, and leather mudguards. The Adiprene on the forefoot of this sneaker was relocated to the heel. Ozweego 4, came with the combination of the best parts of the previous models.

Ozweego 5, on the other hand, has a rare, fierce appearance. It displayed a midfoot that is partly the same with Adidas Climacool and debossed planks on its mesh. Ozweego Millennium and other models on its lineup, come after. 

Raf Simons, a Belgian designer, joined Adidas in 2013 and made tailormade silhouette works for the company. He put Ozweego collections back to the limelight because of his sublime technique. 

Today’s Ozweego TR points a classic, suede mesh and TPU construction on its upper.
