Even though the Torsion system is still an active component in performance footwear today, the technology is strongly associated with the era of its debut, the late 1980s. When Torsion first appeared in 1989, it was seen on some of the most beloved, coveted three stripes shoes of all time, the ‘thousand’ models from the legendary ZX range. The latest stop on the Torsion’s 30th anniversary tour jumps ahead from this familiar starting point by a decade, for a trip to the end of the millennium.
Start intentionally misspelling the titles of popular songs on Napster to circumvent copyright claims, worrying about Y2K, and interjecting the phrase “is that your final answer” into everyday conversations, because the Adidas Torsion TRDC (Trediac) is pure millennial style.
A trail running silhouette with a futurism tinged design the TRDC features a mesh upper with synthetic overlays, an aggressive, tread outsole pattern, EVA midsole with Adiprene heel unit, and of course, the Torsion bar. A diverse palette of tech indigo, pink and college green completes a look that could best be termed Rugged 2.0.
