The latest from adidas Hoops will be an updated take on the old FYW (Feet You Wear) series with Boost. Thus, the brand has aptly renamed the tech to BYW (Boost You Wear), and we can’t wait to try it out.
Feet You Wear was an interesting concept; it mimicked the foot and kept the wearer as close to the ground as possible for a barefoot sensation. Replacing the old EVA foam with Boost almost seems counterproductive to the original concept, but we’d be lying if we said we weren’t interested in trying it out.
Bounce almost seems like it would have been a more natural fit for the FYW system, but Boost is hot right now so the brand might as well ride the wave as far as it’ll take it.
The materials look awesome because adidas seems to have intertwined modern knits with old school suedes and synthetics. The modern sock-like collar also makes an appearance, as does adidas’ original trefoil logo (which mirrors the new adidas performance logo).
