Fresh silhouettes and unconventional designs have been pouring out of Adidas’ factories for a while now, and to great success. The Ultra Boost, Tubular Shadow, NMD, and EQT models all have unique designs that don’t look anything like your conventional runners, but have found a following thanks to their out-of-the-ordinary looks.
The Deerupt is the next in line as an option for someone who wants something futuristic but quite minimalist at the same time. It’s clearly got a lot of modern Adidas heritage in its lines, but it’s simultaneously rather novel.
The most prominent design element that will pop out is the mesh netting that covers the entire shoe – from the sole through the upper, there’s thin mesh netting stretching across the surface. The upper is a thin single layer fabric, while the chunky sole is an EVA-based foam, and not Adidas’s Boost cushioning – which might be relevant for some.
So if you’re looking for a new lifestyle sneaker that’s very clearly cut from the Adidas cloth, but isn’t quite as prevalent as the NMDs or Ultra Boosts yet, the Deerupt might be just the ticket.
