Size and fit

The Adidas Kaptir is a shoe that can be worn by both men and women. However, it is only available in men’s sizes. For the ladies who want to get a pair, it is recommended to get one and a half size smaller for a better fit.

The shoe is designed with a premium knit upper, thus providing its wearers a sock-like feel. Additionally, it is built with a low top that allows the foot to have more freedom of movement.

Adidas Kaptir Style

The Adidas Kaptir is a sport-inspired sneaker with a modern style that is great for casual wear. It is a shoe that is for everyone and everyday activity. This low top Adidas sneaker is released in attractive yet straightforward colorways. Moreover, it has a unique silhouette that attracts the eyes of the people when it is worn on the streets. With the shoe’s striking design and complementing tones, wearers continue to move in style.

Despite being able to satisfy a workout attire and date night get-up, it is commonly worn with street style. This sneaker pairs well with joggers, jeans, slacks, and shorts.

Notable Features

The first thing you will notice is its low top, which has a pretty large opening that enables its wearers to slip it on quickly. This feature allows it to be easily worn, making it a popular shoe for those who are always on the go. Despite being easy to slip on, it still holds the foot securely. 

The sneaker also has a lace-up closure; however, to make it a little different, it is also designed with a strap. It is modeled with a unique tongue, which is attached to the shoe, making it unadjustable. It also has a pull tab at the heel, with the brand name printed on it, to help the foot to slip on and off the shoe easily. 

The Adidas Kaptir also features a cushioned Cloudfoam midsole for a cushy and supportive step. Because of this attribute, the shoe is ultra-comfortable even when worn on an entire busy day. It also has added support due to its TPU heel counter.

The Adidas Kaptir looks a lot like the Adidas Kaptir X. However, the apparent difference between the two silhouettes is the tabs on the tongue and heel and the subtle strap design.

The Kaptir’s tab on the heel is attached vertically, unlike the horizontal heel tab found on the Kaptir X. The Kaptir lacks the tongue tab that is found on the Kaptir X. Lastly, aside from the traditional lacing system, the Kaptir has a subtle strap design, which the Kaptir X does not have. Each has a different outsole design also.

Adidas Kaptir History

Adidas belongs to the top athletic shoe brands all over the world, which is named after its founder, Adolph, Adi, Dassler. However, some urban legend says that the brand’s name is an anagram for “All Day I Dream About Sports”. Being in the industry for a very long time, the three-striped brand successfully established its name in the market. Moreover, Adidas has already released a lot of well-known sneakers that feature different technologies.

Among the many technologies discovered by Adidas is Cloudfoam technology. This technology is under the sub-brand of Adidas, which was launched in 2008 and is known as NEO. The innovative Cloudfoam features a lightweight cushioning system and a responsive stride. It is also designed with a well built and sleek outsole. Ever since the technology was made public to the market, it has played a part in a significant number of Adidas sneakers. Among these is the Adidas Kaptir.

The Adidas Kaptir has a sock-like fit that boasts a modern street style. More than being a running shoe, this sneaker is widely used as a lifestyle sneaker due to its sophisticated silhouette. The sleek details of the shoe, like its three stripes and its speedy looking outsole, are hard to ignore, especially when it is displayed on a straightforwardly designed shoe.
