The low -top Adidas Torsion Comp is offered in both men’s and women’s sizes. This low-top sneaker comes with a lace-up closure that allows it to accommodate users with narrow to slightly wide feet. The padded collar also provides enough support in the area.

Wearing this tennis-inspired sneaker can be a breeze, thanks to its low-top silhouette and eye-catching aesthetic. Adidas unveiled this in exciting hues, such as all-white, aqua, white/signal green/glory blue, and white/signal coral/glory red.

Adidas is one of the oldest athletic shoe manufacturing companies in the world. It was founded in 1925 by Adolf “Adi” Dassler. Thus, the name Adidas.

However, it was only in 2001 when the company launched the Adidas Originals sub-brand. It consists of revamped and redesigned sportswear-inspired kicks from the brand’s archives. Some of the popular Adidas Originals models include the Adidas Stan Smith, Adidas Superstar, and Adidas Samba.

The Adidas Torsion Comp is also one of the classic silhouettes from the Adidas Originals category. It is a court-inspired kick that is engineered with one of the best cushioning systems of the 90s.
