adidas Brand Print Pack
The Three Stripes brand continues to bring the heat this Fall season, opting to release four new colorways on four respective models as part of the adidas ‘Brand Print’ Pack. Though they each come with a unique interpretation, the visuals are quite familiar and represent some of what we see from the brand on a more regular basis.
Around this time of year, the dark and more neutral tones are quite popular. Considering how easy it is for these adidas silhouettes to look sharp in these colorways, it’s a good season to be dropping these iterations.
The brand’s ZX series has been a historical benchmark for quite some time now. Before the BOOST madness and NMD craze, this is where much of Three Stripes experimentation happens when it comes to sneaker tech. With a design that reaches back into the 80s, the ZX 500 RM Triple Black Boost is a modern update.
Originally, this design comes together as the result of biomechanical research. Countless runners are part of this design study from back in the early to mid-80s. Here, the newest version of this shoe sports much of the same tooling – including a mesh upper with suede overlays.
Of course, the BOOST midsole is a more contemporary and welcome innovation. Logo print appears on the upper as a special note from this pack.
The adidas POD s31 Triple Black continues a series of clean looks for this futuristic model. As part of this special pack, the script on the upper reads “Point of Deflection.” The shoe itself sports a knit base along with retro details such as overlays of TPU and suede.
A midfoot bridge adds to its already impressive support profile while the POD cushion system segments the midsole.
The adidas Sobakov Black Pink combination is an aesthetic we’re quite familiar with. The brand makes a habit of employing these visuals, most recently with a special EQT release. It translates well onto the Sobakov model here in this adidas Brand Print Pack, adding a hint of pink to what is otherwise mostly a pack of adidas triple black models.
The asymmetrical knit upper boasts reflective Three Stripes detailing. We also see the shoe’s name as a special lateral script. The heel tab shows up in a smooth leather. Finally, a gum midsole finishes things off with a distinctive pattern.
The EQT line is a quiet success for adidas. As you can tell from some of the above models, this particular branch of adidas is about bringing back a function-first ethos. As such, models like the EQT Support Mid ADV stand out.
The upper comes in a Primeknit and textile base. It also boasts overlays of nubuck for an additional retro effect. This results in a sock-like, one-to-one fit that doesn’t lack in support. The midsole is another interesting element as it’s put together using a compression moulding technique.
As part of the adidas ‘Brand Print’ Pack, the script on these reads the classic EQT phrase, “Everything that is essential.” Get ready to cop this piece of the pack early as it’s available now at Uebervart. The adidas POD-S3.1, ZX 500 and Sobakov will be available soon.
