The low-top Adidas x OAMC Type O-1S is a unisex sneaker that was offered in men’s sizing. This sneaker uses the combination of laces and strap to secure the feet fully. Found on the midsole is the lightweight EVA cushioning that absorbs shock effectively.

The overall style of Adidas Originals Type O-1S displays a look that is influenced by the 90s outdoor aesthetics with a hint of futuristic design. It has the classic style of mountaineering footwear blended with the midsole of the Adidas Supercourt RX.

This dad sneaker was made of suede upper with rubber mudguard and bold strap across the forefoot. The brand used sturdy laces with zigzag stitching on the collar for added durability. Adidas offers this in several colorways - flesh, mid-grey, and medical green. 

There are several ways to style this. The OAMC x Adidas Type O-1S looks fashionable on feet when worn with athletic ensembles, such as a tracksuit or DriFit shorts and t-shirt. This sneaker also looks excellent when paired with casual outfits, such as ripped denim jeans, chinos, rolled up khakis, or even with dress pants.

The bold profile of Adidas Type 1 O-1S much captures the attention of many onlookers. The midsole of Supercourt RX inspired its silhouette, and the outsole of technical climbing footwear called the Pacific Northwest. 

This 90s-footwear looking footwear also features rubber mudguard and forefoot strap. The unique lacing system, meanwhile, was inspired by mountaineering footwear. Underfoot, this sneaker has split sole that is reminiscent of the retro running footwear.

Adidas collaborated with another notable brand called OAMC to release a pack that featured a perfect balance of modern looks and innovative technology. The OAMC was co-founded by the former designer of Supreme, Luke Meier, and the former Carhartt WIP creative director Arnaud Faeh. 

In 2019, Adidas x OAMC launched a pack that features ruggedly fashionable and futuristic sneakers that propel it into the future. This series aimed to deliver off-trail running footwear that was intended to hit the city streets. 

The Adidas Type O-1 featured a chunky profile that was covered with a delicate pastel palette. This model used premium materials with a rubber strap on the forefoot, rubber toe guard, and mudguard. Adidas unveiled two versions, the Adidas Type O-1L the version that used premium leather, while the Adidas Type O-1S utilized suede.
