Its "toe-down" look was explicitly designed with Instagram picture-taking in mind, making it as fashion-forward as it can be. For a throwback look, ankle socks can be worn with a sneaker, paired with shorts or skirts. The shoe stands out in any outfit and can be mixed and matched with neutral or different colors. It can also be used for any casual occasion, dressed up or down.

Web wrapping is also incorporated on the simple midsole to continue the geometric look. Completing the elegant appeal of the shoe is the iconic Adidas Trefoil logo, which is stamped on the heel.

History of the Adidas Deerupt Runner

Adidas founder Adi Dassler was known for having developed spiked running shoes. He was also known for his passion for innovative kicks, travelling far and wide to meet athletes and find out what they needed the most. As a result, Adidas thrived throughout the years and remains an iconic brand with much to offer. Since its launch in 1949, the company has not stopped pursuing what's next in athletic and lifestyle footwear.

For its casual wear department, the brand has established the Adidas Originals line, introducing clothes, shoes, bags, and accessories for men and women. The series has a trademark retro appeal, taking inspiration from the sports styles of the 1940s up to the 1980s. It has the highly recognizable Adidas Trefoil as its primary logo, which is used on heritage products.  

Adidas Deerupt Runner Heel

Dipping into their archives again, Adidas introduced the Deerupt Runner in March 2018. Its name comes from the combination of “disrupt” and “erupt.” Its main attractive feature, the webbing that encases the shoe, is inspired by another notable Adidas creation: the grid. It’s a midsole design from the 1970s that was first applied to running shoes.

Back then, the net-like theme was used to stabilize sneakers meant for casual use, long-distance running, and basketball. For the Adidas Deerupt Runner, the net was reinvented and incorporated into an updated silhouette. With web covering, other design elements weren’t needed so that the sneaker could at once be simple and unique. It’s a visually arresting shoe, suited for modern casual wearers.
