This month, adidas is in “What if…” mode and presents an interesting combo of hybrids. The adidas Never Made Pack combines archive styles with some of the latest Three Stripes models to reimagine several classic trainers for 2018.
With the Rising Star, Boston Super and Micropacer, the three main inspirations for 2015’s NMD make a return. adidas now combines the uppers of these three 80s silhouettes with the distinctive tooling of the NMD_R1.
Another recent fan favorite is the I-5923, which already pairs vintage aesthetics with a contemporary BOOST tooling. For the Never Made Pack, the shoe assumes the looks of the adidas Marathon in its beloved “Trace Royal” colorway. Most notably, the midsole now features a Dellinger Web part just like the original Marathon TR.
In terms of EQT, 1988’s ZX 930 upper is set atop a BOOST sole with subtle Three Stripes branding. The combination of the all-terrain moccassin design with state-of-the-art cushioning makes for an ingenious hybrid.
Lastly, with the Kamanda the collection also features one of the most popular styles of 2018. To add a subtle twist to the silhouette, the upper of the adidas Country OG replaces the terrace-inspired trainer’s usual suede upper. Using a lightweight nylon material, the discreet upper clashes with the Kamanda’s aggressive gum sole and results in an interesting update on the sneaker.
