Some brands have to reinvent themselves in order to stay relevant. Other brands flaunt such iconic designs that they stay relevant regardless of reinvention. In more than a few ways, adidas falls into the latter camp, and their N-5923 sneaker is a prime example of why. Modelled after the brand’s own ’70s designs, adidas still packs plenty of modern innovation into the killer kick. As a result, expect the best in contemporary comfort to go along with that premium retro vibe.
In the visual department, the N-5923 sneaker keeps it classic, putting those signature three stripes against a sleek black colourway. That’s joined by all sorts of structural flourishes. We’re talking a breathable textile and synthetic upper with mesh tongue and welded overlays, leather heel tabs, a moulded TPU heel cage, textile lining, foam midsole and rubber outsole. Put it all together and you have the best of two worlds. In other words, you have a timeless adidas sneaker.
