Adidas created the Torsion X aggressively by putting different features from several Adidas Originals products together.

On 2019, the Adidas Torsion X was released

Adidas Originals has been celebrating its famous Torsion Bar technology for quite some time already by releasing classic retro models. 

In 2019, instead of re-releasing a shoe, a new model was introduced by mashing up a number of Adidas silhouettes and dubbed it as the Torsion X.

The brand new silhouette, which was added to the brand’s Torsion line, is finished with a bold upper and a bolder midsole. 

The all-black version of the Adidas Torsion X is designed with contrasting elements found on its midsole in the form of the following colors, which gives the shoe a popping tone: hi-res yellow, shock pink, active blue, easy mint, and scarlet. 

It is also available on a solar red contrasting accents found on a translucent top, white midsole, and black rubber sole.

The material of the upper depends on the colorway. The ash silver has a mesh upper, while the black has a textile upper.
