adidas Element Refine JS

adidas-element-refine-js-4

adidas’s latest running shoe is the lightweight and environmentally friendly Element Refine JS. For me I like it because it seems to be a cross between Roshe Run & a Flyknit racer which has been 2 of my fav shoes in the past year.

The shoe features a unique circular mesh fabric upper produced using lessons learned during the development of Primeknit. Strategically placed material splits minimize the amount of material required and support within the upper comes from the strategic placement of both the seams and the 3 Stripe overlay. The seams, though cut and sewn through a traditional process, are anything but and have been placed using insights gleamed from adidas’s extensive research in the running category. The most efficient cut and sew shoe in adidas’s history, with a 90% material usage efficiency, the Element Refine JS is definitely a shoe to keep an eye on this season. Stay tuned for more details and its winter release.

Adidas Originals Marathon 85 Pack

Marathon85-Pack-400x215The Marathon 85 is based on an archive prototype that was never released to the public. Imagined in the mid-80s, the idea was to create a shoe that was super light yet also very hard-wearing. Now the shoe gets its time to shine with the launch of a very special archive version of this prototype. The FW13 offering of the Marathon 85 comes with suede over- and underlays, reflective stripes and heel patch, a nylon tongue and yellow outsole.G96858_PRFTWSTBTY_FI-400x235 G96857_PRFTWSTBTY_FI-400x235 G96856_PRFTWSTBTY_FI-400x228
