adidas‘s revived Microbounce T1 has been presented in a colorful “Workshop” style. A pillar of ’00s Trefoil Brand technology, Bounce uses circular compression units that flatten to absorb impact and snap back into their regular position to return energy. At one point, Bounce was present on everything from basketball to running footwear and now the T1 — one of the most notable models to offer the tech — is returning as a lifestyle favorite 12 years after its inaugural release in 2008.

Where other recent makeups have features tonal yellow or white palettes, this “Workshop” provides a much more colorful look. The full-length Bounce setup is split between a trifecta of bright tones: bubblegum pink on the heel, sky blue on the midfoot and mint green on the forefoot. Patent leather toe bumpers equip an ever-so-soft green hue, while the sizable mudguard uses pearl patent leather and the plastic heel cage uses a blue-green tint.

This abstract jumble of colors is placed between two stark pieces. Up top, a black mesh upper with tonal suede and leather overlays plus a branded Bounce hit on the tongue nods to the shoe’s athletic origins. On the very bottom, a resilient black rubber outsole completes the look. Some sneaker aficionados have compared the Microbounce T1’s overall shape to Nike‘s Air Max 97 or Air Max 98, but here it’s easy to see that the T1’s look is decidedly its own.

The adidas Microbounce T1 “Workshop” is priced at $160 USD, is available stateside via the adidas webstore and will release at EU retailers like END. on March 25.
