Inspired by the weird and wonderful footwear designs of the early millennium, the Yung 1’s aggressive aesthetic encapsulates the spirit of early 2000s sportswear. This week, adidas Originals renders the shoe in a classic rendition that brings those qualities to the forefront.
True to the tech of the era that inspired it, the Yung 1 silhouette features a classic mesh construction with nubuck structural overlays and a wealth of embroidered details. This is countered by a classic EVA midsole with dynamic tooling and a two-tone palette, finished with a durable tricolor rubber outsole.
For its colorway, the latest outing of the Yung 1 sneaker assumes a classic Collegiate Navy/Red/White colorway inspired by a ‘90s running model from the adidas archive. Trefoil branding on the tongue adds the finishing touch, culminating in a bold retro-inspired runner that places classic millennial design language into a clean new context.
