First arriving on the sneaker scene in 1996, the adidas Ozweego appeared to come from outer space — a forward-looking, innovative sneaker that was a true disruptor of its time. Designed to serve as a lightweight running shoe, the Ozweego was released in multiple iterations throughout the 1990s, becoming one of the Three Stripes’ most popular silhouettes of the decade, despite a radical appearance in comparison to its peers. Revisited by Raf Simons in 2013, the shoe’s ugly and proud aesthetic was a major factor in its re-emergence in modern streetwear today, with adidas continuing to answer the demand for fresh new Ozweego colorways.
While the ’90s silhouette remains at the heart of the latest Ozweego releases, adidas continues to drive progression through eccentric new editions of the sneaker that still stay true to its retro roots. Harking back to the days of rave, adidas has recently dropped some neon-heavy editions of the Ozweego. These ’90s inspired colorways include the dazzling green and orange options, as well as this black colorway that’s topped off with luminous detailing.
As well as coming through with the striking visuals, the newest Ozweego editions, including this off-white colorway for those who prefer a slightly more muted selection, also ensure that the wearer never breaks their stride. Performance technology is packed into each piece, with adiPRENE+ forefoot and adiPRENE heel cushioning teaming up with a lightweight midsole for ultimate comfort.
