Lo and behold, it could not be any more timely that adidas reminds the world they have a very wide catalog outside of their archival models and BOOST-equipped techwear. Always referencing the past to inform the future, the newly minted Deerupt Runner is an overt expression of the widespread impact of the company's developments in cushioning technology. A diamond-patterned webbing appears all over the shoe, from the loosely expanding upper then embedded onto the surface of the midsole. This webbing is a direct nod to the Dellinger Web, the eponymous technology invented by Bill Dellinger.

The rest of the Deerupt's design follows almost standard minimalist constraints of this day and age. In a bit of a power move, the shoe is devoid of any adidas branding except for the Originals Trefoil on the ankle. The lacing system is almost redundant as trend of sock fits continues into the decade, but the system is neatly integrated into reinforced eyelet strips for any required adjustment of fit.

The Dellinger Web referencing upper and midsole is more of a cosmetic addition playing into the grid aesthetic of the Deerupt. The overall shape of the shoe has been designed to be Instagram-friendly, with particular emphasis on a sleek look from the top down. The webbing "breathes" with the movement of the foot. Comfort is hidden inside, with a microfoam Ortholite insole featuring raised sections to cushion the parts of the foot coming into contact with the ground: heel, forefoot and toe.

The adidas Originals Deerupt Runner is here to disrupt everything from March 22nd online and at selected Hype DC stores. It is priced at $169.95 and available in mens sizes 7-13 and womens sizes 5-10 (US sizing).
