The adidas Feet You Wear Salvation 97 was recently reintroduced to the Three Stripes’ roster, seeing a streamlined retro of the original ’90s sneaker. The adidas Equipment model is fitted with torsion technology support, a thick padded tongue and a lacing system that harks back to the archives. Sitting atop a chunky sole unit housing the iconic “Freddy Foot” logo, the adidas FYW S-97 was a trip down memory lane for many Three Stripes purists.
Fieg’s collaboration is a strong one, picking a shoe that hasn’t quite touched the hearts of the masses just yet. Sporting a classic tennis-themed colorway that sees a white upper, “Tennis” green inners and detailing on the Equipment logo, eyelets and sole blocks, and a hit of fluorescent yellow on the central eyestay, the collaboration delivers a stellar follow up on the 2019 FYW series.
Uppers made from a mixture of leather and mesh are complemented by grey lateral toe box inserts and clean white rope laces. As per the reissues FYW S-97, the Ronnie Fieg collaboration will also see added adiPRENE® and EVA for increased sole comfort.
