Respecting the past while keeping an eye on the future is a quick cheatsheet for successful innovation. The team at adidas has put together a model that does just that and still keeps it as stylish as ever.

The adidas EQT Cushion ADV is the result of the brand merging models into one cohesive runner that speaks to everyone— from those who run the streets, to those who actually run. It’s an interesting style with a mesh build and sock like ankle enclosure along with a few familiar elements of sneakers past. They forgo the use of Boost and include a plastic shank for stability that intersects the midsole.

Look out for the adidas EQT Cushion ADV at select adidas retailers in November.
