adidas adiFOM Q – ‘Core Black Carbon’

The adiFOM Q caught the attention of adidas thanks to its similarities to the YEEZY FOAM RUNNER. It seems, however, that the inspiration runs deeper with adidas returning to the silhouette of their 2001 shoe, the adidas Quake, to create this. It also has more of a shoe structure than the FOAM RUNNER, giving real shoe laces and a tongue – the kind of stuff you’d expect to find on a shoe. The shoes are currently sold out everywhere, so you’ll need to find a stockist if you’re interested in one of the most sensational shoes of the year.

The Dunk once again returns to its roots tapping back in 1985. It’s a distinctly nostalgic release that looks like it might have been around since the 80s thanks to its worn look. Sunwashed denim with contrast stitching on the upper and distressed midsole give the shoes a distressed look. The shoes won’t feel like they’ve been around since the 80s thanks to the padded high comfort. These are set to drop on September 27.

Dr Martens x Aape 1461 Smooth
