The chunky appearance of the Adidas Veritas Mid Weave is balanced by the snug fit most of its wearers feel in its interiors. The shoe runs true to size with a hidden lacing system that secures the feet but still leaves space for movement in the spacious toe box. The footwear is available in men’s medium – D width. It comes in US size ranging from 7 to 13.
The Adidas Veritas Mid Weave has a contemporary style that focuses on functionality rather than on embellishments. Most see its deconstructed design as minimalist with a woven upper that is lacking decorations but is overflowing with features. The result is a stylish mid-cut kick with an embedded three-stripe Adidas logo ready for pairing with short or long pants in dark colorways that does not overpower one’s outfit for the day. The few design elements from the hidden shoelaces, neoprene tongue, and translucent pivot point outsole all add up to its discreet display of style.
Despite its unassuming design, the Adidas Veritas Mid Weave sneaker has a few prominent features that include its tough woven upper, Fitfoam plush footbed, and hidden lacing system. All these elements make this modest looking sneaker shine for sneaker purists who don’t want too many complications and distractions from their shoes.
The Adidas Veritas Mid Weave is inspired by hugely popular basketball kicks in the 1980s. The inspiration behind the design of this sneaker is the Forum Hi a favorite basketball shoe, and iconic silhouette from Adidas released in 1984. The Forum Hi was the first Adidas trainer to come in hi and low variants with a hook and loop ankle strap, and a pivot point outsole.
The Adidas Veritas Mid was initially released on November 6, 2014, at the same time when the OG version of the Forum was released by Adidas on its 30th anniversary. The Veritas Mid, however, deviated from the Forum’s chunky form and came out in a modern treatment with a deconstructed look in a lighter and minimalist style with a concealed lacing and an embedded three-stripe logo. The result was two variants: a woven outsole with an EVA outsole and another model in a photo-printed nylon upper and a translucent outsole.
The following year in 2015 the German shoe company released the Adidas Veritas Mid Woven with a more pronounced woven pattern on the upper. Soon other variants of the Veritas Mid design followed that include the Camo, Graphic Weave Pack, and Fading Weave Pack.
