Meet the Newest Addition to adidas Originals: The Swift

adidas has been killing it this year, from awesome adidas originals colorways to great performing basketball sneakers, the brand has been on point. Now, a new addition is coming to the adidas Originals family for Fall/Winter 2017.

Meet the adidas Originals Swift, an amalgamation of 80s runners and modern-day tech. It features a full Primeknit upper with a collar akin to what adidas uses on the UltraBoost. There is an EVA midsole present with Torsion support in the midfoot for added stability from past adidas runners so performance shouldn’t be compromised (although it seems like this sneaker is being presented for lifestyle rather than performance).

Several colorways have been spotted: a white, multicolored version for the men and an all-pink version for the women. These provide the Swift with a recognizable yet modern take on adidas runners of the past. You can expect more colorways of the sneaker to release in the coming months.

The adidas Originals Swift is set to release on July 27 alongside an apparel collection at and select adidas retailers, though no price for the model has been announced as of yet.

  1. Okay Adidas, enough with this silhouette. It is time to move on.
    Also I am not wearing pants like those, no. I do not care who wears them, that shit is NOT cool. You are going to see some seven foot dude trying to pull off that look, and it will be tragic. Just no.

    1. Well you don’t have to wear those pants, you can just rock some ball shorts and you’re set. Also, the same argument could be said about Nike and all the colorways they’ve been releasing for the same shoes.

  2. primeknit upper….mmmmmmmmmmmmm
    no boost or bounce in the midsole……..whatttt??????

      1. are you really considering ‘all things’? because i would think that the fact that adidas produce two of the best cushioning systems in the universe would be uppermost in that list of considerations

        1. Also the price is ahead of those considerations. Sure they can do that put Boost, but not every consumer has $180-200+ USD to shell out. This is meant to be a more budget conscious option.

          1. the alphabounce is cheap enough to be a budget conscious option, and it’s ridiculously comfy, they could have at least put bounce in here

          2. I know, I have the OG AlphaBounce. I’m not part of adidas’ design team so I’m only speculating. But I think what they were going for was a new take on old classics with PK and have it be a little more budget conscious. Only time will tell how much these will actually cost but if these are more expensive than the AB, then something’s not quite right.
