Editor’s Notes: adidas Originals’ all-new sneaker silhouette, the Atric F/22 PK, is very clearly influenced by trekking shoes and takes its name from an aperture setting in professional photography which creates crisp, focused images with a high depth of field.
adidas Originals partnered with Woolmark to co-develop a bespoke Merino wool fiber Primeknit upper just for the shoe. Merino wool is known for its unique technical qualities such as moisture-wicking, water resistance, breathability, and comfort.
Because trekking shoes are making a comeback thanks to the ugly shoe trend of the past few seasons, the Atric F/22 PK will be the perfect outdoor companion this summer thanks to its durability and modern design. Check out the sneaker in more detail above and let us know your thoughts on the new silhouette in the comments.
In addition to the new sneaker, adidas Originals will be releasing an apparel collection comprising an adventure vintage jacket, pants, T-shirt, trek backpack, and an adventure-branded five-panel cap. Flip through apparel offerings below.
