adidas began with Adi Dassler’s obsessive quest to produce specialized sports footwear, and became famous when the West German national team’s replaceable studs lead them to victory in the muddy 1954 World Cup Final. The brand with the three stripes rapidly ascended to worldwide icon status, and the sneakers it produced for any and every sport were soon being voraciously consumed by style conscious youth, as well as competitive athletes. Today, adidas continues to exist on the forefront of cutting edge performance technology and fashion, while its heritage line draws from the nearly limitless archive of beloved classics.
The 1990s were no stranger to audacious style. It's one of the things that defined the era. The decade's running shoes played a part in that as well, something the adidas Orketro Shoes are based on. The daring aesthetic of the past is just the starting point, pushed to the future with flame-like overlays, a reflective underlay and inverted 3-Stripes. And with the unsymmetrical design as a canvas, there's no question that these sneakers are entirely unique.
