Adidas LXCON 94 History

With its almost seven decades of heritage, Adidas has gathered countless silhouettes to work with. The brand has mastered the art of uniting fashion, form, and function in all its products, making it one of the formidable brands in the athletic and fashion domain.

Adidas Originals, a Three Stripes' sub-brand, was formed to specialize in re-introducing vintage style to the current lifestyle fashion. This sub-brand aims to familiarize the younger generation with the history of the brand by adding fresh elements to a few of its vintage silhouettes.

In 2018, the brand once again expanded its retro lineup by introducing the Adidas LXCON. This model was initially unveiled in 1994 as a follow up to the success of the EQT line. Adidas Lexicon created a promising mark in the running genre for its distinct plastic piping found on the heel of the upper down to through the lacing system.

The brand reimagined the LX CON in 2019, launching the Adidas LXCON 94 as a lifestyle sneaker. Displaying a look dubbed as chunky dad sneaker, the Adidas LXCON 94 receives the similar technology-infused treatment as the original version.
