A combination of classic Torsion tech and new-age materials/construction, adidas OriginalsTorsion X has been brought to market in an “Orbit Grey” colorway. Mixing a lunar-colored base and bold accents, this Torsion X accents each piece of its unique construction with artful applications of various hues that run the gamut from metallic to athletic.

Made of mesh and overlaid by suede and synthetics alike, the uppers proffer a crisp look. What’s most interesting about the Torsion X is how many pieces from other adidas models it seamlessly interpolates. The tongue and eyestays both call to mind images of Kanye West‘s YEEZY 500 with oval-shaped suede pieces and a cutout on the top of the tongue, while the silver plastic tubing that snakes through the eyestays and wraps around the heel can also be found on the revamped Ozweego and LXCON.

However, the Torsion X offers plenty of details all its own. A bold logo hit is stamped on the tongue, and the three-piece BOOST footbed combines a compelling conglomeration of tones: heels use metallic gold rimmed in red, the midfoot is covered with a semi-translucent blue plastic sheath, and the forefoot is unadorned, retaining its original white tone for a crisp look. All of this is brought together by a blue Torsion plate under the midfoot, which works with the red Torsion bars that encircle the rear for support.

The adidas Torsion X is available on the adidas webstore now, and is priced at $180 USD.
