adidas continue to delve into their archives to inspire their retros by giving them an updated look such as the adidas Consortium ZX4000. Their newest release is the adidas FYW -S97 also known as the adidas Salvation 0G is no exception.
Initially released in 1997, this running model was the first to utilise adidas’ Feetyouwear technology. At the time, most running shoes across the board featured square-cut outsoles which caused injuries leading to ankle roll and other motion related injuries. The solution was to strip away the squared outsoles and produce wide, lower-to-the-ground soles that curved from outsole to midsole. The result was a new silhouette that featured an EVA midsole and Adiprene insert further added to the shoes ahead of its time ideas and the shape of the outsole foresaw the evolution to barefoot-style running shoes.
The upper is dressed in a timeless White colourway with red and blue hits. Combined with leather overlays and mesh underlays along with wired eye-stays for lockdown and the ‘Freddie’ faced logo. Further technology that is utilised from the original to the current SS19 release is the use of Torsion system. This innovation bridges the gap between the rear foot and forefoot to allow each part of the foot to move independently without straining.
adidas Consortium FYW S-97 ‘Running White/Red’ is now available in-store and online. Sizes range from UK6 – UK12 (including half sizes), priced at £140.
