adidas Originals continues to ramp up the hype ahead of its latest EQT sneaker release, this time with a slick video chronicling the performance line's history.

Kicking off at the end of the '80s, the viewer is led through a series of historical events and changes which led to the inception of the EQT line. Candidly, the narrator explains how adidas had fallen behind by its rivals by the early '90s, resulting in a full brand reset. Leading with the motto of  providing "everything that is essential and nothing that is not," designers set about creating a new line specifically for athletes. Thus, the Equipment (EQT for short) range was born.

Watch the video above, and then sate your EQT appetite further with this “Core Black/Turbo” Support Adv.
