adidas Unveils its Newest Silhouette, the P.O.D. System, Which Draws From the ’90s

The adidas P.O.D. System combines many aspects from the past with current technology to create a sneaker for the future.

With all the new and old silhouettes coming out such as the aggressive-looking AlphaBounce Instict and the re-release of the Continental 80 after 40 years, it appears that adidas Originals is on a tear as of late. That being said, meet adidas Originals’ newest entry to that lineup: the P.O.D. System.

The P.O.D. System (Point of Deflection) is an amalgamation of three components that have been used throughout adidas’ historic run: the TPU Point of Deflection Bridge from 1989, which brings stability and flex to the stride, a high-rebound EVA forefoot from 1995 that allows for a soft yet responsive cushioning, and adidas’ top-tier cushioning, Boost, in the heel. Finally, there is an over-designed knit upper that gives the wearer a snug and supportive feel.

The adidas P.O.D. System ‘Core Black/Grey’ is set to release globally June 16 for $130.

  1. I really like the look of this one. Maybe it’s the 90’s kid in me, but the color blocking and the decoupled heel and forefoot just look awesome to me. Time to hit up Footlocker on the weekend!
