The adidas Consortium FYW S-97 OG launches at HANON, February 16th.
The second key technology utilized in both the original and SS19 version of the FYW S-97 is the Torsion system: essentially a TPU arch that bridges the rearfoot and the forefoot, allowing each part of the foot to move independently of one another without straining the foot. In the process it offers further degrees of support and stability for wearers as they move across uneven and varied surfaces. Torsion was first released in 1989 and is a technology that the brand still uses in it’s performance silhouettes today. Originally introduced by Jacques Chassaing, the legendary designer responsible for the adidas ZX range. The ZX range was the direct predecessor to the EQT range from which the original FYW S-97 model came, and its emphasis on craftsmanship and cutting-edge technologies can be traced right through the FYW S-97 and indeed to the adidas runners of today.
From the timeless white, red and blue colorway and the ‘Freddie’ face logo, to the combination of mesh, leather and wired eyestays: every other detail in the new FYW S-97 has been chosen for its ability to reflect the qualities of the original ’97 release. A shoe that merged innovative technologies together and created an unforgettable aesthetic in the process.
