Anyone who has gone jogging, even if it was just one time as part of an abortive New Year’s resolution, has interacted with vehicles that, for one reason or another, seem to regardnotstriking runners as, if not purely optional, at least an open ended question. Imagine how much worse that was when jogging hadn’t fully entered the mainstream consciousness yet.
The need for increased visibility went beyond the aesthetic. To that end, in 1979, Adidas introduced the original Nite Jogger, a high visibility blend of white, solar orange, and early experiments with reflective technology. Like countless other three stripes models of the era, this specialty purpose running shoe became a favorite of the sneaker coveting casual tribes.
In 2019, the retro style of the Nite Jogger has been reinterpreted with modernized design elements. The silhouette has been transformed from a simple, rounded 1970s running shape to a chunkier, tech influenced build, while maintaining a lightweight feel. A nylon ripstop and mesh upper features suede and reflective overlays, while Boost cushioning offers state of the art, modern comfort.
