Although adidas Originals has mostly been celebrating 30 years of Torsion tech by re-releasing classic models, they’re looking towards the timeless support system’s future as well, and aiming to begin its next chapter in earnest with a new silhouette dubbed the Torsion X.
At first glance, the Torsion X certainly cuts a bold figure, one that draws bits and pieces from other Three Stripes lifestyle favorites. Both the tongue and the circular suede eyestays are reminiscent of Kanye West‘s adidas Yeezy 500, while the plastic tube that wraps around the asymmetrical lacing system and heel gives off serious adidas Ozweego vibes. The rest of the upper features a layered combo of synthetics and suede, while a bold branded hit appears on the tongue. Although the top is unquestionably loud, the midsole is even more wild, featuring a split three-part design that uses Boost cushioning and a flexible midfoot support system for fit and feel, plus wild-colored hits on the outsole and overlays for style.
Certainly not for the faint of heart, you can expect these new Torsions to release on September 14th at limitEDitions Barcelona.
