adidas Originals presents Never Made, a footwear concept that takes iconic silhouettes from the three-stripe archive and reimagines them by swapping out the original sole for contemporary tooling. The collection features eight distinct silhouettes drawn from three decades of adidas design. 

From the '70s-inspired Line of Descent series, shoppers can expect the Ix4D, which fuses the vintage-inspired I-5923 silhouette with 4D carbon-printed tooling; the COUNTRYxKAMANDA, featuring the Country atop a Kamanda sole unit; and the MARATHONx5923, one of the brand's earliest running silhouettes remade with BOOST. 

Next up, the genealogy of NMD series sees a trio of '80s silhouettes mounted atop NMD_R1 tooling, resulting in the MICROPACERxR1, BOSTONSUPERxR1, and RISINGSTARxR1.

Finally, the genetically Modified '90s Tech series brings adidas' Feet You Wear and EQT technologies into the future through the addition of BOOST tooling, creating the 98xCRAZYBYW and ZX930xEQT.

Check out the individual silhouettes in the gallery below and expect the Never Made Collection to release October 17th at

Release Date: 10/17/18 (Wednesday)
