Are you searching for an inspiration for your autumn outfit or wondering which sneakers should enrich your collection? If so, you certainly need to check which sneakers are in this fall! But first we have to warn you - choosing only one pair of shoes won’t be a piece of cake.
Technologically advanced classics in a new version - Reebok Daytona DMX II
Some people consider them to be a re-edition of the model from years ago, while others perceive these shoes as a world-class innovation. Reebok Daytona DMX, the first launch of the model, were hailed as one of the most interesting brand’s products available on the market. That’s why designers decided to put the model again in the spotlight. The shape and look of Reebok DMX II resemble the prototype version. At first glance they seem to look almost the same, but when you take a closer look, you can notice the difference. The fabric on the top of the upper is definitely a feature that differentiates these two models. The synthetic mesh allowed the designers to uncover the top of the shoe. This way, you can see shoe lace straps which aren’t present in the previous version of the model. Another thing that has been changed is a bigger logo on the side of the upper which makes the project even more dynamic. As far as the midsole is concerned, EVA and DMX Moving Air foams ensure comfort and convenience of the wearer. Combining white and grey with a highly contrasting neon color turned out to be a very effective designers’ idea. So are you still wondering if the shoes are appropriate for the autumn season? It is as clear as day.
The classic model perfect not only for street basketball - adidas Originals Streetball II
Let’s go back to the past in a fantastic style. adidas Originals Streetball II refer to the first version from the 90’s. The German manufacturer came up with the idea of re-launching this project already in 2017. Inspired by the games of Rucker & The Cage senior designer at adidas Originals - Prad Indakumar - decided to express the intensity and aggression of the street hoops with the help of the sports shoes. But what is the difference between the original version and the newest design? The 1992 model was designed to improve the status of street basketball on the entire continent, while the 2019 project was supposed to restore players' glory and give new meaning to outdoor creativity. adidas Originals Streetball II is a past improved by the future, the revival of the best adidas’ qualities with the use of contemporary culture. We can see it even in the photo - the rebirth of the original model with a hint of futurism preserves the sports-focused goal. Initially, the project team was inspired by Christopher Nolan's batmobile, more specifically, "a large massive tank that can be manoeuvred only by a superhero". But Indakumar says that the first drafts deterred them from this idea, because the shoe looked "too uncomfortable and yet very predictable.” There were several versions of this model in the designers' sketchbooks. Eventually, they chose a project in a 3:8 ratio that was enriched with industrial details. Consequently, the designers decided to use the Litestrike midsole that increases the dynamics while walking.
The sole of the model is another element that is worth mentioning. After all, what would an outdoor basketball sneaker be without good traction? The creators of adidas Streetball II took a closer look at tires of a mountain bike and soles of running shoes. Then, they determined a common factor combining these two observations. As a result, they got an outer sole made of rubber.
"We wanted to create a shoe that balances the world of style and functionality. A shoe that is attractive both for outdoor basketball players and for customers who are not interested in playing the game. Streetball II is a proof that sports and culture influence each other and can become one thing.” - says Prad Indakumar.
