Our verdict

Based on the classic 1998 Ozweego 3, we discovered that this new silhouette is streamlined but retains the innovative tech and loud aesthetic for which the Ozweegos are known. Though intensely retro, the Ozweego looks futuristic with its prominent heel wedge (reminiscent of the Yeezys) and translucent supportive piping. Labelled under Adidas Originals, the Ozweego is appreciatively affordable.

Apart from sneaker fans who adore '90's fashioned sneakers, the Ozweego is also for buyers who are:

Who should NOT buy

If you have wide feet, you better check our wide sneaker selection as the Ozweego might feel tight, especially on your toe box.

It screams '90s fashion

Its strangely chunky '90s silhouette has fascinated us upon acquiring the shoe. While nodding at all its predecessor's mainstay features, the Ozweego looks sleeker and sharper with its futuristic design lines brought by its prominent heel wedge and translucent support piping. It's the perfect distillation of the Ozweego line.

Powered with stunning cushioning

We were surprised by the Ozweego's intense level of comfort. Thanks to AdiPrene's targeted cushioning, excellent shock absorption and a smooth and effortless ride are what came out of the strategic placement of cushioning on the forefoot and heel areas.

Intricate details

The level of detail that goes into the Adidas Ozweego is impressive. We found that it is easy to fall in love with the Ozweegos at first sight and touch. It bears striking details—the colour blocking, stripes, piping, and eyestay. We love that its silhouette is primarily defined by its beastly midsole's sculpted muscles and lines.

For its price, don't expect too much

We observed that some parts of the shoe lack quality materials.

You can wear the Ozweegos with different outfits

This kick can't help popping out in any casual or sporty outfit. It works well with baggy styles and slim-fit, tapered-down outfits (jeans, joggers, sweatpants).

Get ready to get loads of compliments

We received unsolicited public admiration just by wearing this pair. Its strangeness and ugliness check and excel in all the dad shoe requirements. Instead of looking fat, as most dad shoes are, we thought that the Ozweego appeared more slim, fit, and athletic.

It hugs the foot with a soft, lightweight feel

Though chunky, the Ozweego is, in fact, lightweight, based on our observation. This gives us no dragging-down sensation at all.
