This faithful reproduction of the running shoe from 1997 was developed in-house by the Adidas team. This season, Adidas is diverging slightly from the usual corporate template with a number of releases designed entirely in-house. They nevertheless capture the spirit of the corporate family and its celebration of visionary creators who simultaneously draw on the past and look to the future.
From the timeless white, red and blue colorway and the ‘Freddie’ face logo, to the combination of mesh, leather and wired eyestays: every other detail in the new FYW S-97 has been chosen for its ability to reflect the qualities of the original ’97 release. A shoe that merged innovative technologies together and created an unforgettable aesthetic in the process.
When it first appeared in 1997, the FYW S-97 was the first running shoe to utilize Adidas’ Feetyouwear technology and the ZX range was the direct predecessor to the EQT range from which the original FYW S-97 model came, and its emphasis on craftsmanship and cutting-edge technologies can be traced right through the FYW S-97 and indeed to the adidas runners of today, the new release is also part of a number of 30th anniversary Consortium releases that celebrate the Torsion system which released in 1989.
