Would it be overboard to suggest that these are the coolest adidas in years? We’re saying nothing to denigrate the Three Stripes, as their adidas Originals collection has certainly raised the bar, and the upcoming Star Wars colab is sure to have a dedicated following. What you can’t deny, though, is that the adidas Fortitude is one of their more inventive models and something about its construction is just inherently pleasing.
We don’t need collaborations or premium levels to appreciate how the super smooth lines meld perfectly with an otherwise outdoorsy look. And the colour combinations are on point: a pair in black with tonal purple and white accents is joined by some grey joints with yellow and green accents that look like adidas’ answer to Nike’s nu-retro colourways. Set for a January drop, you can pre-order both pairs from End.
