Continuing with their revamp of classic, iconic styles; Adidas gave the EQT Running Guidance the contemporary treatment recently to great fan acclaim. Read on for all you need to know about the Adidas EQT Guidance trainers.
Adidas EQT is a range first seen back in 1989, when the brand decided to create a ‘fuss-free’ collection aimed at serious sports professionals. The idea of removing all distractions from footwear and performance clothing with the focus being on the construction, practicality and ease of use.
Equipment is all you need, nothing more, nothing less. No gimmicks, no unnecessary features, no loud colours.
Since then, we’ve seen numerous styles come from the range including; performance clothing, basketball trainers and running trainers. These pieces utilised innovative construction add-ons such as torsion tech, unique lacing systems and breathable mesh.
- Poleurethane midsole for added comfort
- Leather, suede and fabric uppers available
- BRS 100 rubber outsole for support
- Signature three stripe logo
One of the notable releases from the Adidas EQT range is the Adidas EQT Guidance 93′. First released in 1992 it was praised for it’s lightweight construction and suitability to running. If the EQT range was home to some of Adidas’s most technically advanced footwear – the EQT Guidance 93′ was it’s mascot. The original adidas equipment shoes offered maximum comfort with it’s supportive sole unit, torsion bar and ghilly lacing system.
Twenty years later, Adidas brought the trainers back to the forefront with updated colourways contrasting mesh and synthetic suede upper. Alongside this, they feature technical tweaks to the original wrap-over tongue, side strip lace-stays and torsion sole unit.
