adidas is looking back to 2008 and some of its most unusual technological advancements with the release of the Microbounce T1 “All White.”
The Microbounce T1 is a running shoe from over 12 years ago that capitalized on the Three Stripes’ bounce technology, sporting a highly-compressed sole unit made up of a series of hollow circular segments. These compression units are housed between a bottom-plate outsole and a large rear-quarter heel component that allows for further cushioning.
As this pair is traditionally a runner, adidas has kept the sneaker’s weight down with a mixture of synthetic leather and mesh used throughout the Microbounce’s upper. Leather adds support around the base of the foot, heel and for the eyestay, while mesh is well-perforated for a breathable, lightweight approach.
Elsewhere on the triple-white sneaker, you’ll find white Three Stripe branding on the mid-panels, adidas branding on the tongue, textile loops at the to of the tongue and on the rear, a reinforced toe-box and a set of white laces to bring it all together. Take a look at the adidas Microbounce T1 “All White” in the gallery above, and pick up a pair for yourself at retailers such as 43einhalb when they release in the coming weeks with a retail price of €169.95 EUR (approx. $187 USD).
