adidas Originals is debuting a new silhouette for 2017, the Iniki runner. The retro-inspired silhouette draws from the Three Stripes' athletic heritage, combining elements from iconic runner designs with technically advanced components. The build uses a paneled construction of two-way stretch mesh with vintage suede overlays, finished with a shiny-mesh tongue and serrated signature three-stripes, all paying homage to a classic, nostalgia-fueled runner construction. Modern performance details include a concealed sock-fit design, OrthoLite sockliner and a BOOST midsole for a cushioned ride. Copper-tipped laces and a gum rubber outsole complete the look. Introductory navy and red colorways are scheduled to hit stores March 1st. 

Release Date: 3/1/17 Wednesday)
