adidas has a strong grip on retro styling with its expansive list of silhouettes in its archive. Tapping into this knowledge, the Three Stripes recently introduced the Orketro as a ’90s runner and brutalist-inspired sneaker. Fitting in alongside trendy retro-influenced runners, the Orketro has already seen a variety of approaches, including a collaborative pair with Sean Wotherspoon that has been teased.

Continuing the model’s rollout, triple blue and triple black colorways of the sneaker are set to release. Both feature the shoe’s signature Three Stripes at the forefoot and various linework throughout the upper. An adiPRENE-infused sole lands on each pair with silver “adiPRENE” branding on both midsoles, matching the tongue’s silver adidas Originals and Orketro branding. The mesh and suede upper deviates only slightly in color between materials as both pairs stay true to their signature color from head to toe, save for the blue pair’s black and neon yellow rubber outsole.

Release for the adidas Orketro in its all-blue and all-black colorways is scheduled for September 30 at 6pm EDT via select retailers such as Asphaltgold at a price of €159 EUR (approx. $157 USD). A wider release via adidas is expected to follow in the coming weeks.

In other footwear news, Spitfire Wheels has joined adidas and pro skater Tyshawn Jones for a new collaborative silhouette.
