Adidas EQT Support ADV Primeknit History

Adidas was in near bankruptcy and needed to come up with something that will help pull them back into the frontline in the late 80s. They conceptualized a product that contains only the necessary and essential and remove everything that is not. That concept gave rise to the iconic Equipment line in 1991. Adidas became so bold in their EQT line by offering honest and transparent products.

This fuss-free collection focused on the construction, performance and comfort of the shoe. They initially released the EQT line with iconic green-white-black colorway. Adidas decided to drop the Trefoil logo and replaced it with the 3-Stripes trademark.

Since then, the EQT began to rise and be known in the sneaker community. Serious athletes and passionate sneaker fans started to call the EQT as the best shoe for them.  The EQT family started to widen and offers various models for basketball, volleyball, soccer, fencing, running trainers and even clothing designs.

The first Equipment ADV was released in 1991. This shoe carries the Torsion technology, which allows the foot of the wearers to move in different directions at the same time. It also exhibits a unique lacing system. The EQT ADV successfully set a new standard as a high-performing shoe in the runner’s world.

26 years later, Adidas recreated the classic EQT ADV and added cutting-edge technologies to keep up with the fast changing needs of the present consumers. Adidas introduced the EQT Support ADV Primeknit which was inspired by a classic running shoe. Primeknit was used on the upper and an EVA midsole. Adidas kept EQT to their fundamental purpose, to keep whatever is essential and remove whatever that is not.
