Earlier this year, we asked industry experts to weigh in on what they thought would be this summer’s hottest sneakers. Among the Yeezys, Ultra Boosts and NMDs, Julian Kalitta of Overkill store said “our insider tip for the next season is the adidas Equipment Support ADV. This completely new model features a Primeknit upper, has a gigantic sharp shape and is perfect for the summer – watch out!”
While they haven’t caught fire in quite the same way as some of the other Three Stripe offerings, a quick-fire series of banging releases (“Triple White,” “Core Black,” and the “910“) have proved Kalitta was right. And this latest all-black model is another one to add to that list.
Whereas previous releases have been brighter with lots of white and bold colors, this all-black monster is the meanest and darkest EQT we’ve seen yet. As usual, the shoe is incredibly lightweight and features a breathable mesh construction, a clear black cage, TPU overlays, and strap branding. Three Stripes detailing at the tongue and heel complete the look.
The adidas Originals EQT Support ADV is set for release on July 1 at select retailers, including Afew.
