Adidas created a monster in late 2015 with the NMD, a retro-inspired franchise that dominated the lifestyle sneaker scene throughout 2016 and continues to be one of the Originals division’s strongest sellers. For 2017, the brand has another nostalgia-driven Boost runner that could be the next big thing.
The sneaker’s upper features a two-way stretch mesh paired with vintage suede, a shiny mesh tongue and serrated Three Stripes branding culled from Adidas heritage designs.
Inside, a socklike construction delivers a snug fit, while the brand’s Boost cushioning offers a responsive ride. Many of the Iniki Runner’s debut colorways are finished off with gum rubber outsoles to further the old-school look.
Adidas previewed today two colorways in red and collegiate navy. Those will be launching March 1 alongside four additional colorways — two of which are women’s exclusives — at select Adidas Originals doors including Inflammable. See the full lineup below.
