The retro-leaning Adidas Yung-1 Online, as a mainstay in the Three Stripes pursuit of vintage-akin toolings, is back once more in a mixture of light neutrals and smooth mint pairings. Uppers are largely muted in their execution with slight color blocking adding illusory modifications to perceived dimension. Swapping between darker shades of a light tan and slightly off-kilter white tones, the design goes from one end of the spectrum to the next between its overlays and unders. Profile logo hits impress in their cool tone hit as well the heel, with those same colorful hues and more coming imbued onto the checkerboard insole and tongue iconography.
Shop Adidas Yung-96 silhouettes continues to get tread in a number of sporty color schemes including the brand new red and blue variety featured here. Like its Yung-1 predecessor, the 96 comes anchored by an over-layered upper that falls right in line with much of what adidas is pushing these days, on par with industry demands. Premium suede comes into play across its blue upper while a white and grey midsole provide contrast underneath.
The Adidas Yung-1 on Sale arrives once again in a scheme as retro as its overall look. Intricate paneling, smooth nubuck uppers, and a textural synthetic line the entire construction of the last with overlays donning a scheme much more luxurious than past pairs. The profile stripes, which arrive plastered over the grey mesh, don a contrasting white with a shimmering gold finish lining their edges. This extends throughout the rest of the upper, poking out from the forefoot, eyestay, vamp, and rear-facing pieces. Much of the kit aligns in unifying fashion; despite varying in shades of grey and sitting next to loud notes of the brand’s Frozen Yellow, no accent seems out of place.
Clearly pushing forward with the Adidas Yung-96 Shoes as one of its premier Originals silhouettes, adidas continues to refresh the chunky model with a myriad of new and exciting color schemes. Drawing inspiration from its Yung-1 predecessor, the 96 equips an over-layered upper with a slue of color blocking capabilities including this sporty combination of Navy and Red featured here. Black, white, and grey are mixed in as well to provide the offering with a neutral base, and a quick hit of head-turning volt takes shape on the bottom of its sole unit and on its Trefoil brand heel stamp as a clear focal point.
Titled the “Atmosphere,” the shoe is inspired by a decent through the earth’s atmosphere and stratosphere and features a combination of grey, silver and two different shades of blue — light and royal — on the striking paneled upper. Adidas Yung Mens/Womens An END logo replaces the normal trefoil graphic on the left shoe’s tongue, while a simple white midsole and black/grey outsole ensure that all attention is focused on the colorful upper.
