The adidas SL Loop is an addition to the SL family, which has roots with an Olympic pedigree. In the 1972 Munich Olympic Games, the runners took off their spikes and laced up in the “podium shoe” SL 72, a shoe designed for athletes to wear in between competitions. Traces of the SL 72 can be seen in the this most recent SL Loop Runner through its lightweight upper material, iconic T-toe and sculpted concave midsole that have all been updated for modern standards.

Today marks the release of one of the most stylish and tech savvy shoes to come from adidas in recent memory. The adi Pure Boost, combines the innovative material that is adi Boost and a lifestyle look that one might not associate immediately with adidas to form a street shoe that will, without a doubt, make waves throughout the sneaker world. The combination of innovation and style is evident not only by looking at the shoe but also by knowing a little about the shoe’s origins. Birthed through a collaboration between three adidas designers – one performance running, one street wear, and one from Y-3 – the adi Pure Boost boasts a simple yet powerfully stylish silhouette. While past iterations of the Boost technology releases focus mainly on running performance, the Pure Boost’s design focuses on comfort above all else. While it’s branded a lifestyle shoe, the Pure Boost can be worn for anything from running to lounging to the office to the street. A seamless upper contributes to that comfort while the four-way stretch material used allows the shoe to expand with your foot as it sits directly on top of the Boost midsole. In addition to its comfort the Pure Boost is unbelievably light weighing 8.3 ounces for men and only 6.3 ounces for women. The adidas Pure Boost is available in stores and online beginning today for $ 120.
Featuring a solid black base with burgundy accents completed with the Mutombo logos on the tongues and heels, the adidas Mutombo 2 is one of those must-have retros. Differentiating itself from the first model, this second signature model displays the synonymous Mutombo shield on the heel with the former NBA center’s last name gracing the tongue. This OG colorway of the Mutombo 2 made its debut back in 1995, and refreshed for 2014, the mixture of black and fiery burgundy sets out to be just as popular as its predecessor.
Available in select stores and online Saturday.
From the Crazy 1 to the T Macs to the Mutombos, adidas has been steady in their output of retro basketball sneakers. This weekend we’ll see another join the wall in the adidas Mutombo II. Last year we had the pleasure of welcoming the original Mutombos back to Foot Locker. Now, the former All-Star center and the NBA’s all time leader in blocks, Dikembe Mutombo, will have his second signature shoe re-released. Saturday’s Mutombo II will be an OG black and red colorway – the same colorway Mutombo wore during the 1994 NBA Playoffs when his Denver Nuggets stunned the top seeded Seattle Supersonics in the first round. Features of the Mutombo II include a number of overlays on the upper, Mutombo’s name across the tongue, and his brand logo on the heel.
The adidas Originals Mutombo II in a black and red colorway will drop at Foot Locker stores and Footlocker.com (starting at 8am EDT) on Saturday, May 10th for $ 110. Check the Launch Locator to see if which stores will carry the release.
