Adidas Fortitude Mid Clay Camouflage

By - March 18th, 2011

The Fortitude Mid, which made it’s debut in early 2010, has been redesigned and rereleased for Spring 2011. The shoe represents a very identifiable design trend at Adidas: models which combine elements of hiking boots into sneaker silhouettes – see the ZX800, for a prime example. Not every attempt at this hybridization has been 100% perfect, but the Fortitude Mid – especially in this latest version – represents an interesting harmony. While the 2010 versions were available in a somewhat harsh neon pack, and a love it or hate it black/purple colorway, for this latest iteration, Adidas is offering two less jarring colorways: washed-out blue or clay. The shoe retains it’s definitely unique look though – Adidas added in a camouflage ankle collar, and brass hardware, along with the weathered canvas and ripstop upper. Check out both colors of the shoe after the jump; the new Fortitude Mid is available now at Concepts.
