Retailing at around 119 Euros, the adidas Iniki Runner is not the cheapest running shoe out there. But, while at the same time keeping the vintage vibes with features like blue three stripes logo on off-white two-way stretch mesh upper with suede overlays and red rubber outsole, this silhouette also features adidas’ cutting edge boost midsole that offers modern comfort.
In Hawaiian, the word iniki can mean sharp, piercing gales, like a hurricane. Yet it can also mean to punch or rip, like pangs of love. What better name for these shoes inspired by swift ’70s runners? Suede overlays on the toe and heel lend a vintage look to the stretch-mesh upper. These shoes slip on fast thanks to their sock-like structure. boost helps energize your step, while webbed rubber outsole offers great traction.
The new adidas Iniki Runner (Off White/ Blue / Core Red) will be available at asphaltgold on April 20th.
