Good to know

Adidas Seeulater OGs feature neoprene sock inserts that hug the feet. These sock inserts are covered by a leather shell, which provides all the support and stability the feet needs. 

The shoes use a lace-up closure system, which is composed of round laces, round eyelets, and lace loops. Heel pull tabs provide a convenient way to put on or take off the sneakers. 

The Adidas Seeulater OG have a bright and bold look that would go well with casual and ultra-modern wear. For a slightly understated look, match the shoes with a pair of slim jeans or rolled up denim and a simple tee. You can also elevate the style a bit, and pair the footwear with Harajuku pants for a very trendy style.

The Adidas Seeulater OG shoes have uniquely designed uppers that combine trail function and modern aesthetics with a retro feel. The result is beautifully-rugged footwear that can handle the streets as well as the trails. Although the OG shoes are geared more towards casual use, they can do well when used for short hiking trips. Aside from the pleasing style and high function of the shoes, also noteworthy is the comfort they give.

The Adidas Seeulaters first appeared in the early 90s under the EQT (Equipment) line. The EQT collection was composed of fully functional footwear for athletes that contain “everything that is essential and nothing that is not,” as their tagline says.

The Seeulaters were trail and hiking shoes, which seamlessly combined rugged cleat features, like sturdy outsole units, with sneaker technology. They also had sock-like structures for supporting the ankles (this was an advanced feature at the time).

A collaboration on the shoes was launched by Adidas in September of 2016. The Seeulaters were cult classics in Japan, and it was only natural that a Japanese brand—mita—would collaborate with Adidas on them. The resulting sneakers had combined mesh, suede, nubuck, and neoprene uppers done half in blue and half in tan. Glow-in-the-dark speckled midsoles and rugged outsoles completed the look.

The shoes made a comeback on October 21 of 2016 as the Seeulater OGs. These were released in two colorways, one an OG color while the new one featured a bolder shade. The construction of these two remained the same as the 90s original. However, there are also Primeknit renditions of the Seeulater OGs.

  • The Adidas Seeulater OGs feature a sock-like construction, elasticated nylon cuffs, trail-inspired rubber outsoles, and leather, nylon and mesh fabric uppers.
  • The OG shoes are available in Bold Pink and Tech Steel colorways.
  • The leather contains micro-perforations for breathability.
