Say hello to your new favourite trainers. Adidas have become king of the chunky sports shoe thanks to the recent releases of the Falcon and the Yeezy 500. The exaggerated footwear silhouette is one of the biggest trends in footwear at the moment and this is in no small part thanks to the backing of Kanye West. With high end fashion brands putting their own spin on the trend adidas have returned with a new series of trainers which blend the modern styling with some classic eighties designs.
The Yung Series will include two colourways in the Yung 1 and a clean white colourway in the Continental 80 (which shares many features of the iconic Yeezy Calabasas). All three styles will be landing online at Xile on the 21st June and you can take a closer look at the silhouettes below.
Adidas Yung 1 (£99)
The Yung 1 silhouette is a brand new release from the iconic three stripes and in two colourways this looks destined to be a Summer essential. Taking design inspiration from the iconic 90’s Falcon Dorf silhouette the Yung One features nubuck uppers with mesh underlays and woven three stripe detailing to the side panel. The two colourways debuting this month are a bold Hi-Res Orange alongside a red, blue and white version. While the inspiration for the design comes from the nineties the technology included is brand new and the Yung 1 features a sole unit designed with Torsion technology which offers free movement underfoot, without sacrificing support and stability.
Adidas Continental 80 (£75)
As the name suggests the adidas Continental was originally introduced in the late 1980’s and the style has been reproduced for the first time as part of the Yung Series. Initially expected to be released as the Adidas Rascal the style shares more than a passing resemblance to the Yeezy Powerphase and the original Continental may well have acted as inspiration for Mr. West. In a crisp white colourway the Continental 80 is constructed from a premium leather with a double cupsole and ribbon stripe detailing running along the side panel. With adidas branding to the tongue and heel this minimalist design is completed with a branded Adidas window to the lace panel.
