Model: Strutter Wide
Key Features: The adidas Strutter Wide is the stereotypical “dad shoe” in that it features a simple leather upper, minimal branding and details, and a wide, chunky shape that seems to be made for anything ranging from mowing the lawn to playing squash on a Wednesday night. The shoe also bears a striking resemblance to a certain rival sportswear brand’s iconic dad silhouette.
Release Date: Available now
Editor’s Notes: Just when we thought we had turned the corner and were leaving “dad shoes” behind us, adidas gives us what the Three Stripes describes as “the dadliest of street shoes” in the form of the Strutter Wide. The look the German brand is going for with these shoes is clear as day, with a simple white and navy blue color scheme, minimal detailing on the upper, and a wide, chunky shape.
As an observant Twitter user noted, these sneakers bear a striking resemblance to the Nike Air Monarch.
