The original adidas EQT (or Equipment) range was originally ordained for runners. However the need to service all athletes and their pursuits soon saw the range and design mentality applied beyond the track. From football to hiking and tennis to Basketball, the EQT range of the original 90s left no sport unchecked. The defining feature of the original EQT Basketball Boot that debuted in 1993 was a unique internal boot system. With sturdy, permanent overlays of mixed leather, synthetic and TPU, the internal bootie was a removable sleeve that could be interchanged for colour, style or even comfort. Now, 25 years later, adidas Originals have revisited this Three-Striped original, rewriting the rules and drawing up the EQT Bask ADV.

The acronyms and shortening of the EQT Bask ADV name, points to the present linking to the past. The Equipment tag leads the Basketball legacy while the ADV moniker blends the modern notion of innovation and newness. Appropriating this early 90s style has produced a mid-top design rich with comfort, flair and Three-Stripe accents. The internal bootie of '93 reappears but is retooled in a knit mesh and poly-suede sleeve while familiar Three-Striped webbing on the quarter supplements the eyelets and flows down to the midsole. Leading the dynamic looks of the design are the TPU heel wrap with an embossed EQT callout which also houses a S-cut heel with contrasting embroidered detailing. Moulded and flowing, the midsole sports a D ring support piece on the forefoot and signature three-Stripes on the foxing. An impressive disruption of the now, informed by the past, the men's and women's EQT Bask ADV is a true indication that 'Original is never finished'.

The men's & women's EQT Bask ADV collection is priced at $199.95 AUD | Size: Men's US 7-13 & Women's US 5-10
