Fit & Sizing
The Adidas Sleek S shoes are available in women’s sizes ranging from 5 to 11. Its low-cut profile provides the ankle a freer range of motion. Also, a hook-and-loop strap closure secures the foot with an instantly customizable fit.
Adidas Sleek S Style
The Adidas Sleek S sneaker is only offered in a single colorway: the Cloud White/Cloud White/Hi-Res Yellow. But the colorway stands out gorgeously because of the undeniably catchy, gleamy midsole. The platform midsole does not only give the wearer extra height, but its yellow neon gleam also adds a refreshing look to the timeless appeal of a white sneaker.
With its sporty yet elegant style, the Adidas Sleek S can be worn with a wide range of outfits. Ladies can go all preppy, sporty, and edgy at the same time. Put on a pair of light-colored, relaxed-fit pants or denim shorts, paired with a white tank top for that easygoing, daytime look. Joggers, leggings, and sweaters are good matches to the Adidas Sleek S. You can also lace up the Adidas Sleek S with a pair of black skin-tight jeans topped with a black leather jacket, or a cardigan, or a white blouse under a black sweater. Dresses and skirts also flow well with this stylish white sneaker.
Its smooth white all-leather upper is fastened up by a pair of adjustable white straps. Sitting elegantly next to a strap on one side is the Adidas logo window. Where the iconic Three Stripes should have been on the vamps, there were rows of punched-out holes, adding a vintage vibe to the modern look.
In surprising contrast, all of this sits on top of an unusual neon-colored platform midsole. Such a combination elevates the style of the sneaker, and with an edge.
Adidas Sleek S History
Founded in 1920 from the ruins of the Great War, the Gebruder Dassler Schufabrik fell apart in 1948. The pair of Dassler brothers, Adolf and Rudolf, who ran the shoe company parted ways after a tense, almost violent conflict following World War II. In 1949, Adi Dassler registered the "Adi Dassler Adidas Sportschuhfabrik." A year prior, his brother Rudi founded what would become Puma.
Adi once again began his shoe business in Herzogenaurach, Germany, with forty-seven employees under him. Throughout the next sixty years, Adidas had churned out a set of legendary sneakers, which impacted athletics and sports, sneaker culture, and took the footwear industry by storm. Classics best-selling silhouettes such as the Samba, Stan Smith, Gazelle, and Superstar became choice staples and household names and continue to be such until today.
In 2019, Adidas has launched the female's exclusive Sleek series, which draws inspiration from their classic designs, such as the Stan Smith, and all the while giving them a modern-day feminine interpretation. The Adidas Sleek S is the freshest drop from the Sleek series.
