Good to know

This model has a stretchy mesh-based upper, which is breathable and lightweight. Durable leather overlays are placed in a couple of key wear areas, such as around the tongue. Inside the sneaker, a textile lining and an Ortholite insole add more comfort to its cozy sock-like fit.   

Besides that, its low-cut entry, comprised of a lightly padded collar and tongue, lets the ankles retain their full range of motion. Lastly, the whole construction is fastened up by a traditional lace-up closure, which locks the feet in with adjustable fitting.

While the U_Path X is available in women’s sizing only, men who like the U_Path X’s design can opt for its slightly similar model. That is the U_Path Run, which is offered in men’s sizing.

Adidas has the knack and, of course, the expertise of coming up with designs which look vintage and modern at the same time. That’s the case with the U_Path X. While looking boldly futuristic, its silhouette pays homage to its old and proud running heritage. And as such, the U_Path X easily matches with a wide range of clothing. From the old school of casual and sporty to the new school of athleisure and activewear. (This U_Path’s silhouette even has glimpses of the renowned Adidas NMD shoes.)

This running-inspired sneaker is most definitely made for the ladies who are on the run to make the best out of life. Meeting up with friends around town, revisiting pubs, roaming around malls, hitting the gym, or leisurely walking at the park—the U_Path X is all right for these activities and the outfit each of them requires.

Ladies can feel free to dress these kicks up with almost about anything that comes to their mind, such as jeans, leggings, joggers, sweatpants, shorts, dresses, skirts, etc. A light, simple top can finish up the look, for that ready-to-go on-the-run vibe.

The most striking feature of the U_Path X is its simplicity, which has an X factor. This model is in no way loud in its design. It has a simple silhouette that looks both elegant and unusual. That belies its sort of techy design. Just take a look at the little perforations and the clip at the heel, the modern sock-like fit of the sneaker, and the durable toe bumper pointing the way. Perhaps the subtle and unassuming colorways have something to do it, as they flesh out the U_Path X’s classy lady vibe.

The U_Path X comes in a nice little selection of colorways to fit anyone’s taste. It features bright and dark colors or a mix of both, which make it tempting to collect. Here are the colorways: 1) cloud white/purple beauty/core black, 2) core black/purple beauty/cloud white, 3) core black/energy ink/cloud white, 4) icey pink/icey pink/cloud white, 5) cloud white/real blue/night metallic, 6) soft vision/chalk purple/cloud white, 7) real blue/purple beauty/cloud white, and 8) grey two/shock red/night metallic.

To honor their classic heritage that goes way back to the 1960s, Adidas launched the Originals umbrella in 2001. With the slogan, “Once innovative, now classic, always authentic,” the Adidas Originals is a subbrand that caters to the brand’s iconic old designs.

It began by releasing remakes, reissues, redesigns, and reinterpretations of historic silhouettes such as the Stan Smith, Superstar, Gazelle, Campus, Samba, and the like. Now, these respective sneakers have their own lines and iterations, all labeled under this large umbrella. Adidas continues to expand this umbrella by churning out fresh models inspired by their classic silhouettes. The U_Path X is among the newest products of that innovation. It proudly bears the unmistakable Three Stripes and the Trefoil.       

  • While providing impressive cushioning, the Ortholite insole also has anti-moisture and anti-microbial properties that keep the feet cool, dry, and clean.
  • The bits of perforations at the heel area add more breathability.
