adidas Originals has been on top of its lifestyle footwear line since the 1972 Munich Olympics when they set off to give their runners a comfortable post-performance sneaker. The result was the adidas SL ’72 – a shoe that would let the athletes’ hard working feet relax when being rewarded at the podium. Now the brand looks to recreate that magic with the introduction of their adidas SL Loop Runner; the silhouette builds upon successful releases like the ZX Flux thanks to a lightweight midsole that aids the unique mesh upper, and yet manages to harken back to retro releases thanks to a T-toe construction. The three stripes even play a pivotal role as they move from the side panel into to the lace eyelets, creating an appealing “reverse” stripes integration into lace loops. As always, catch a full preview of the latest adidas Originals release in four brand new tie-die esque colorways after the click and pick up your favorite via adidas today.
