The Adidas Seeulater OG shoes have uniquely designed uppers that combine modern aesthetics with a retro feel. The result is a beautifully-rugged footwear that can handle the streets as well as the trails. Although the OG shoes are geared more towards casual use, they can do well when used for short hiking trips. Aside from the pleasing style and high function of the shoes, also noteworthy is the comfort they give.
Adidas Seeulater OG History
The Adidas Seeulater first appeared in the early 90s under the EQT (Equipment) line. The EQT collection was composed of fully functional footwear for athletes that contain “everything that is essential and nothing that is not,” as their tagline says.
The Seeulater was a trail and hiking silhouette which seamlessly combined rugged boot features, such as a sturdy outsole unit, with sneaker technology. It also had a sock-like structure for supporting the ankles and which was an advanced feature at the time.
A collaboration on the silhouette was also launched by Adidas in September of 2016. The Seeulater was a cult classic in Japan, and it was only natural that a Japanese brand, mita, would collaborate with Adidas on the silhouette. The result was a sneaker with a combined mesh, suede, nubuck, and neoprene upper done half in blue and half in tan. Glow-in-the-dark speckled midsoles and rugged outsoles completed the look.
The silhouette made a comeback on October 21 of 2016 as the Seeulater OG. It was released in two colorways, one an OG color while the new one featured a bolder shade. The construction remained the same as the 90s original.
