Last year saw adidas release the prototype version of the Racing 1 (or Formel 1 as it’s sometimes know) a never seen before runner from the 70’s. After seeing the Racing 1 pop up again in the White Mountaineering first drop it’s time for another colourway on the prototype model.
Inspired, as the name suggests, by Formula 1 racing, one of the most stand out parts of this shoe is the extended sticky rubber sole. Alluding to the profile of a racing tyre, the extended heel also invokes “spoilers” seen at the rear of racing cars to add drag and make them stick to the road. The purpose of the “spoiler” on these is to make a perfect foot roll possible whilst running.
Coming in a mainly white nylon and suede upper, the midsole adds a vibrant red and deep blue whilst the outsole keeps it racing tyre black. Additional pops of colour come from the yellow triangle present on both sides of the shoe and two green pops on the heel area.
