CLIMA COOL 1

Adidas

$130.00

The evolution of running shoe technology is a fluid evolutionary process, but at the risk of oversimplifying, it would be fair to say that the critical point where modern design separated itself was the advent of technical textiles. These new materials were lightweight and functional. These materials became the default for running shoes, while old standbys like nylon, suede, and leather became solely the concern of classic, rereleased models.

The Adidas Climacool was a major step forward in performance fabric. The combination of moisture wicking and cooling ventilation was applied to a running shoe, and the next generation of runners had arrived. Years later, and there are any number of ‘athleisure’ shoes, blending a progressive, performance aesthetic with contemporary, cutting edge style, that seem to have taken generous amounts of inspiration from the original Climacool 1.

So, what better time to bring back the genuine article? The reissued Climacool features tonal colorways and transparent side panels that accentuate the stylistic side of this groundbreaking running shoe.
