It's not an uncommon occurrence to find an athlete quickly slipping out of their contest trainers and into some lifestyle-loungers after sweating it up, signifying the transition between competition and the cooling off period. A shoe that resonates this ethos more than most, adidas' own 'podium shoe', the SL 72. Using the iconic and original SL 72 as inspiration, adidas Originals is proud to introduce the newest member to its family this summer, the SL Loop Runner. Smoothly served in four introductory colours of solar red, solar green, frost mint and onix, the contemporary creation takes on a lightweight upper, suede T-toe construction and a sculpted concave midsole. Alongside the tightly tuned construction, the SL Loop Runner boasts some intriguing visual aesthetics, including peel back serrated Three Stripes, which serve to form the eye stays, and an even more intrepid wavy print patterning which consumes the mesh upper. Destined to drop this coming July via select adidas Originals retailers, enjoying the gallery ahead of the release and let us know below which of these your feeling the most.
