Size and fit

Women’s and men’s sizes are offered for the Adidas Deerupt Runner Parley. On the Adidas website, users are instructed to get a half size larger than their usual.

Many wearers have also confirmed that the sneaker runs small. It has a lace closure that helps to adjust the tightness, while its low-top collar allows the ankle to move freely. Knit material is used on the upper, providing a flexible and breathable fit.

Adidas Deerupt Runner Parley History

In a small town in Germany, Adi Dassler established a shoe manufacturing business right in his mother's washroom. This was in 1924, and the tiny company was on its way to becoming a giant in the footwear industry, renamed Adidas. During the brand's early days, Dassler set out to make the best possible shoes for athletes. The effort paid off when his shoes were worn by gold medalists in the Olympic games, ensuring that the brand had its place in history.

In 1949, Adi Dassler split with his brother and business partner Rudi Dassler, with both brothers creating their own brands. Adi, aged 49, registered Adidas, named after his first and last names. Meanwhile, Rudi established rival brand Puma. On the same day that Adidas was founded, Adi registered a shoe that incorporated the soon-to-be iconic Three Stripes design. His innovative streak would continue to propel the brand forward from then on.

Due to its long heritage, the brand often takes inspiration from previous models in its archive. In March 2018, Adidas released the Deerupt Runner, named after a combination of the words “disrupt” and “erupt.” Webbing encased the whole breadth of the shoe, inspired by the grid, another innovative creation from the brand. It also featured a midsole design seen in running sneakers in the 1970s.

Adidas further pumped up the model with an eco-friendly twist in the form of the Adidas Deerupt Runner Parley. It features the same minimalistic yet bold elements as the original design. Adidas worked with Parley for the Oceans for this edition, using yarn made from Parley Ocean Plastic. It’s made from recycled waste found in beaches and coastal areas, in line with the brand’s eco-conscious activities.

Nice to know

  • This shoe’s midsole was made with Boost technology for responsive cushioning.
  • Zoned cushioning was used for the sneaker’s sock liner, which has molded foam pockets that hold and cushion the foot securely.
