adidas Originals Fourteener | Fall/Winter 2011

By - July 12th, 2011

The Fourteener, a new addition to the adidas Originals lineup, is neither a trail shoe nor a hiking boot. Rather, it has the look of a throwback running shoe — say, the ’80s-era adidas Jogging Hi — that’s had specific elements of a hiking boot affixed piecemeal to the shoe. The composition of the padded collar, D-ring lacing system, heel counter and bulked up treads somehow work with the silhouette, resulting in a shoe that wouldn’t look out of place on the trail or a city sidewalk. The initial offerings are a brown suede or black leather model, slated to drop in August. via CT
