First surfacing in the ’80s, adidas‘ Torsion System has been a favorite of runners and sneaker fans alike since, merging innovative design and forward-looking technology. Torsion was originally introduced in adidas footwear for trail running, boasting lightweight arch support for maximum stability and comfort.
Across decades, silhouettes with the Torsion System have remained extremely popular, with the technology finding a home in some of the Three Stripes’ most iconic sneakers. As Torsion turns 30, adidas continues to celebrate its innovation via brand-new sneaker drops and remastered kicks.
For team Torsion, we’ve rounded up the tech-heavy sneakers available right now, including both new and older releases. Our picks include Yohji Yamamoto‘s Y-3 ZX sneakers, featuring the designer’s printed signature on the heel, as well as a pair of ZX 6000s, released to mark Torsion’s 30th anniversary.
Further highlights include popular ’90s-inspired models such as the Yung-96 and Yung-1 — all featuring adidas’ signature Torsion System.
