“Iniki is a Hawaiian word that can be translated to mean piercing gales (winds)”
An adidas shoe growing in demand is set for a huge launch of New Colours in a few hours…here at adidas.com 8am GMT 20/04/17 to be precise.
A retro design meets moderm comfort and the Iniki Runner certainly embodies the past meets future mantra.
As you can see the shoe takes inspiration from vintage adidas running shoes from days past, and fuses this with the modern boost tech that we’ve come to know and love.
First released earlier this year the Iniki Runner sold reasably well online and in stores. But when people actually started to try the shoes on and see more on foot images on social media…they sold out shortly after. With a retail price tag of £89.95 they have real potential to rival the popularity of their cousin the NMD. They even make for a fair adversary to brand rival Nike’s Spiridon Ultra that has a similar price tag.
The suede and stretched mesh uppers really give them that 70’s feel, you could almost imagine the cast of the popular “That 70’s Show” donning a pair of these with flared jeans, large collar polo shirts and tinted aviator sunglasses…”totally rocking dude”.
The shoes come equipt with mesh and suede uppers sitting above a signature boost mid-sole and webbed rubber gum sole. The secret of the instant comfort behind these beauties is the hidden sock construction within the shoe to slip on with consistent ease.
Finished with the serrated printed stripes to cap off the vintage feel and call it a day with the Iniki wording printed next to the stripes. What a shoe, and for under £100, you’ll be kicking yourself if you miss out.
