Adidas Originals introduces its newest sneaker, Deerupt — a contemporary take on adidas heritage realized in a radically new look. At once minimalist and bold, the silhouette looks to the archive for its grid design inspiration, while debuting a new profile that remains undeniably adidas.
Inspired equally by urban planning, architecture, and natural phenomena, Deerupt holds the grid as its central design principle. Initially featured in adidas running silhouettes in the 80s – once a key feature on the New York runner and Marathon Training shoe – today the grid design is stretched to envelope the entire shoe.
Constantly playing with the grid itself through textures, layers and different perspectives, the collapsible, runner-inspired design features an ultra-lightweight construction with knit uppers covered in stretchable netting.
