Editor’s Notes: After dropping the modernized LXCON Future earlier this year, adidas Originals is bringing back the sneaker that inspired it, the 1994 Lexicon OG, a close cousin of several models from the adidas EQT range.

While the OG's upper is slightly busier and the sole unit less bulky, the similarities are clear beyond the purple/white/black colorway. The sneaker features many key Three Stripes technologies of the era, including an adiPRENE midsole and a Torsion support system, and structural cables that lock in the the Forefoot and midfoot.

The Lexicon OG dropped this weekend on May 18.
