Size and fit

This low-top footwear from the Adidas Originals range comes in both men’s and women’s sizing. However, a women’s exclusive colorway in teal/purple/yellow/white is also available for those who prefer a more funky style.

Spotted rope laces and nylon eyelets enable the wearer to secure the feet depending on how tight or loose one’s preference is. The Torsion bar and AdiPRENE® cushioning allow for better surface stability and heel comfort, respectively.

Adidas Torsion TRDC Style

Fashion is timeless, and so is the Torsion TRDC silhouette. With colorways ranging from tonal hues to multi-color, there is no limit to what one can wear.

  • For a clean look, one can wear a printed floral dress, an extra-wide, flimsy fedora hat, and a white/grey pair of Torsion TRDC on the feet.
  • To complete an urban jungle look, one can wear a khaki jogger-type pants, a plain black tee with the tech indigo colorway for that pop of color.
  • A pair of cotton shorts and a plain white polo/blouse with a dark grey pair of Torsion TRDC exudes an earthy vibe.

Notable Features

Apart from the Torsion bar, this repurposed Trediac model also has a Traxion® outsole that provides maximum grip on soft surfaces. Perfect for those who want to wear this from the city to the rough terrains for a quick outdoor break.

Soft French terry fabric lines the shoes that absorb moisture, keeping feet comfortable and dry any day of the year.

In keeping with the Trediac trailer inspiration, reflective accents are strategically placed all over the shoe.

Adidas Torsion TRDC History

Introduced in 1988, Adidas marketed the Torsion technology for those who want to excel in their sport. Targeting not only the athletes but to anyone who wants to challenge themselves continuously.

The Torsion System is an arch support that enables the wearer to move the forefoot and rearfoot independently, which provides for better surface stability and superior smooth heel-to-toe transition. It also allows the feet to adapt to different running surfaces without stressing the foot through excess motion.

Mimicking the natural foot movement, this innovative midsole technology features cross-training capacity and is well-received by athletes from the all-terrain running, tennis, basketball, and aerobics industry.

Just like their marketing strategy, the company reputable with the three-stripe branding continued to push boundaries by introducing this innovative technology to cater to any sport.

With the slogan, “I Can I Want,” the Torsion TV ad campaign launch still rings true to this day. 

For the technology’s 30th anniversary, Adidas launched the Torsion X and a rework of the ZX series. The ZX collection was notable for having the Torsion midsoles, which made the models widely popular.
