Bottom line

Adidas has released another member to their chunky retro-style runners in the form of the Adidas Yung-1 Trail. This trail-inspired take on the legendary Yung-1 is filled with superb quality materials and is aesthetically pleasing given its unique colorways and retro design.

Although the shoes run a little bit on the wider side, comfort and durability aren’t compromised. These trail-ready kicks are not only good-looking but they are also quality-approved. 

Facts

These lace-up sneakers are made available for both genders’ sizing. The shoes are made of mesh and nubuck uppers that give the feet a comfortable feel. With a lace-up closure, one can go for a more personalized fit. Given that the shoes are made with a wide fit, those with narrow feet are recommended to go one size down. Wide-footers are advised to go for the usual size.

The Adidas Yung-1 Trail is the trail-ready version of the early-2000s favorite. Its design returns to the era’s oversized profiles that have wavy geometric style and bold, classic outdoors palette that add a turn-of-the-millennium vibe. The layered upper elicits a retro vibe to the shoes’ overall look. With very eccentric colors, such as the minimalist 'Core Black' scheme with contrasting 'Solar Yellow' and 'Hi-Res Aqua' accents and a base of khaki hues and black with touches of pink and a muted yellow, give a pop of color to one’s everyday ensemble. 

One can go for a street-style or sporty outfit with these sneakers. They can easily be paired with joggers, sweat pants and topped with a dry-fit shirt or tank top for that sporty look. For a casual street-style, this pair goes well with jeans or cut-off denim paired with a plain top. 

These shoes offer a creative take on running styles of the late ‘90s and early 2000s that particularly flexes its trail-ready upgrades that will take one far and wide. Made from a wide range of premium materials, including mesh, suede, and leather overlays, one can find an extra thick foam unit down the midsoles for comfort that's been taken to a whole new level. 

The pop of color on the Three Stripes branding on the midfoot grabs attention while the Adidas trefoil logo is embroidered on the tongue. Rounding off the shoe’s trail-ready approach, it is lined with a grippy, rugged rubber outsole for added traction and durability, making them ideal for any rough surface conditions. 

Adidas is a German manufacturer of athletic shoes, apparel, and sporting goods. Founded by Adolf “Adi” Dassler, the company grew steadily during the 1950s and began to produce a wide range of sporting products. In the early 21st century, it was considered as the largest sportswear manufacturer in Europe and the second-largest (after Nike) in the world. Adidas products are traditionally marked with a three-stripe trademark, which remains an element in the company’s newer “trefoil” and “mountain” logos. 

Thousands of shoes, apparel, and other sporting goods have been released by the brand and some of them are from their old archives. From their growing collection of Dad shoes and chunky sneakers, Adidas releases the Adidas Yung-1 Trail which is a trail-ready take on the legendary Yung-1. These shoes bear a more aggressive sole unit in a colorway that screams mountaineering with an off-beat aesthetic that’s ready to take on those rugged trails. 

  • These shoes are great for the fall and winter seasons. 
  • With a stabilizing Torsion technology in the outsole, it ensures the shoe’s durability. 
  • The sole unit sports a jagged zig-zag look for added traction.
  • This retro pair is inspired by the ‘90s Falcon Dorf.
