Editor’s Notes: This year, adidas Consortium is delivering a range of collaborations and in-house releases that celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Torsion System technology. This time the sports giant teams up with Norse Projects to give a fresh, disruptive take on the popular runners’ technology. The Danish brand remimagines the lesser-known Trediac shoe, giving the ’90s running shoe a sophisticated, stripped-back look.
The design builds on the future-facing design approach of the late ’90s. For their take on the Torsion TRDC, Norse Projects puts the shoe’s functional features front and centre, faithfully updating the original’s silhouette, materials and technologies.
