Fall Preview: Adidas Outdoor

Adidas will bring its outdoor collection to the U.S. this fall, distributed through Agron Inc., a longtime partner and licensee of its accessory line. The 45-style footwear offering for men, women and children launched abroad two years ago and includes light performance hiking styles priced between $110 and $200, and a $230 multiday backpacking boot called the Super Trekking Formotion boot. Adidas also will deliver water and multisport styles to select retailers in June. That part of the line includes the men’s Speed Boat style that will retail for $75 and feature an easy-on EVA tongue top, and the colorful unisex Boat CC Lace shoe that retails for $65 and features drainage and Adidas’ Climacool upper. The balance of the collection will deliver to outdoor chains and independents on Aug. 1.
