As sneakerheads around the world patiently wait for the release of Bad Bunny’s melting adidas Originals Reponse CL, the Three Stripes keeps the momentum going with yet another take on the retro-informed silhouette, dropping a colorway akin to the aforementioned collaborative version.

Reintroduced in September 2020, the Response CL looks to adidas Originals‘ early 2000s archive that’s filled with chunky dad shoes, retro runners, and a time obsessed with all things Trefoil. As such, the Response CL puts a heavy focus on adidas‘ branding, sporting Three Stripes on the mid-panel, EQT branding on the heel and tongue, and plenty of proprietary tech that’s also branded.

For example, the white and cream-toned sole unit packs adiWear and adiPRENE technology, nodding to the brand’s EQT and running heritage, while a busy mixture of materials only enhances the OG aesthetic. This particular Response CL features a mesh base that’s overlayed with corduroy and suede panels, leather on the toe box, metal-effect eyelets, a fabric patch on the heel, and contrasting gray mesh that decorates the collar and lining.

Altogether, the pair isn’t too far off Bad Bunny’s upcoming collaboration, and is quintessential of adidas’ past. Take a closer look at the pair above, and purchase it from AFEW Store now for just under €120 EUR (approximately $136 USD).
