Editor’s Notes: With the scene currently dominated by ‘90s revivals and chunky silhouettes, adidas reveals the TAEKWONDO counterpose to prevailing trends. While the sneaker does take cues from adidas’s archive, it’s overall a more stripped back and minimal design than many of its contemporaries. As its name suggests, the TAEKWONDO is first and foremost inspired by martial arts footwear which lends itself to the sleek and ergonomic canvas upper and slip-on-friendly elasticated vamp.
Stay tuned for more news, pricing, and a better look at the new silhouette closer to the January 24 release date.
