After fully embracing coarse looks on silhouettes like the Prophere or the Kamanga, adidas now returns to filigree forms. The adidas Deerupt is the latest Three Stripes sneaker to embody the credo of the past empowering the future.
For a quick sneaker knowledge update ahead of the release, we’ve compiled 5 background facts you need to know about the adidas Deerupt – here you go.
1. The Origins of the Web
The striking grid pattern that extends accross the whole silhouette is called “Dellinger Web”. It was invented by 5.000 meters runner and three-time Olympian William Dellinger and used as a midsole reinforcement technology. The nylon web absorbs impact shock gently and distributes it over the entire midsole – effectly also working as a form of energy return system for runners.
2. adidas Archives
In 1980, Dellinger Web was first used on the adidas Marathon and later found its way onto well-known models like the adidas Oregon, the adidas Waterproof or several models from the ZX line. The technology was a very popular feat that was used quite frequently on adidas running sneakers throughout the 1980s.
3. Deerupt the Grid
On the adidas Deerupt, the web pattern assumes a modern, minimalistic aesthetic that is oriented towards inspirations like urban planning, architecture and natural phenomenons. Taking up on the disruptive approach that’s signature to recent adidas releases, the Deerupt exaggerates the rational grid design for a fashion-forward look.
4. Comfort is King
Fulfilling the requirements of a state-of-the-art running sneaker, the flexible web texture wraps around a knit upper to ensure a super-leightweight construction. Zoned foam pockets are molded along the Deerupt’s interior lining to ensure supportive compression and a snug lock-in fit.
5. Visual Identity
At launch, the adidas Deerupt will be available in four different color options for guys and two variants for girls. The men’s hero style is called “Solar Bird”, combining the two storied adidas colors Solar Red and Bluebird. Set against the trainers web pattern, all of the simple color options and different layers showcase a unique play on perspective that make any iteration of the adidas Deerupt stand out individually.
