adidas Arkyn

Say what you want about adidas, but you’ll never be able to claim that you lack choices. The Three Stripes brand has been prolifically releasing Boost heat for the last few years, giving fans plenty to think about. The adidas Arkyn Women’s shows us that this trend isn’t about to slow down anytime soon.

Featuring in three very distinct color schemes, the Arkyn is set to be yet another memorable model to sport some remarkable colorways for the ladies. Here, we take a look at the Flower White, Ash Pearl, and Steel Grey looks for this future classic.

Each of these colorways comes with standard features for this model. The uppers are in a lightweight mesh, offering breathability and stretch that surprisingly resembles Primeknit. We also see a robust helping of Boost via the midsoles.

In fact, this just about as much Boost cushioning as we see on models such as the Pure Boost and Ultra Boost. As with those models, this unique section makes for a memorable visual.

Thanks to a deep archive, adidas has quite a few signature vintage design details at its disposal. We see some of those notes here via sections such as the neoprene heel and welded sections of TPU throughout.

The colorways represent imaginative combinations that we’ve seen from the brand’s past. Of course, the Flower White pair is more about the hype quality. Every time adidas drops a Boost sneaker that comes in a crisp White colorway, you can expect a rush of orders and line-ups on release day.

The Ash Pearl iteration is perhaps the most interesting of the trio. The Pearl base is eloquently matched up with moodier accents of Blue and Noble Indigo, coming together nicely for a distinctive colorway. We round things off with the Steel Grey pair, flipping the script on the Ash Pearl colorway to make for a more Midnight-esque scheme.

Each of these colorways does a good job of showing off this model’s modern aesthetic flexibility. At the same time, it’s a surprisingly fluid combination of both the old and new.

Back in the 80s, considered by many to be the Golden Age of sneaker design, innovative features were abundant. And yet, somehow, adidas manages to have a treasure trove of old school features that are exclusive to their brand.

This sneaker has partly been so popular due to the endorsement powers behind it. Adidas’s looks have inspired the likes of Kendall Jenner to join their ranks and rock the Arkyn.

In a market with brands such as Puma swiping up as many pop culture endorsements as possible, it’s important to have this sort of backing. With that being said, it’s worth noting that the Three Stripes brand would very likely be just fine moving this shoe off the proverbial shelves.

As we can see from the colorway options featured here, the adidas Arkyn Women’s is a fountain of choice for sneakerheads.

adidas I-5923

There are very few brands that can add new life to older models without it seeming like a desperate rehashing. Adidas, without a shadow of a doubt, is one such brand. The Three Stripes have been captivating our nostalgia for years, all the while continuing to progress through their own evolving design philosophies. The advent of newer and more hyped models hasn’t taken their attention away from some of the more unheralded releases. When adidas first dropped the Iniki runner, it was a potent combination of elements from the past and the present. Now, they push the envelope even further with the Iniki I-5923.

This latest rendition of the underrated silhouette sees more of the signature adidas duality. The form is largely the same but varies on its build and content. The upper we see here boasts a mix of mesh and pigskin nubuck, bringing a touch of luxury to an otherwise practical shoe. The placement of the nubuck details makes it so that none of the shoe’s lightweight properties are sacrificed. If anything, this material choice only adds to the airy feel of each step. Speaking of steps, we also see that chunky piece of Boost covering the underfoot area entirely.

Since its original release, the Iniki has been a remarkably wearable model. Moreover, it’s closer to an understandable price point and helps the rest of us get in on that signature look without breaking the bank. This deconstructed edition gives us even more options, making sure we feel less left out of every special NMD release. Shoutout to the Three Stripes for keeping the sneaker community in mind.

Available now, you can cop these in a range of colorways, including this White/ Black iteration. It goes without saying, but you won’t find many other bangers at this price range!

The New Adidas EQT Support 93/17 Gets a White Makeup

Alongside “Turbo Red” on the ankle support.

Adidas 93/17 Support silhouette is now rendered in a dominating white color scheme alongside deep black and “Turbo Red” accents throughout the model. Instead of Primeknit, the nascent sneaker is equipped with a traditional woven upper that is emblazoned with a pixelated noise pattern. Moreover, the low-top variant boasts premium leather panels alongside a webbed three stripes lacing system that is an acclaimed attribute under the EQT franchise. Of course, this latest rendition is fitted with a protruding BOOST midsole.
