The chunky sneaker trend has been on fire this summer, and the Three Stripes has played their part in fanning the flames with striking releases like the adidas YUNG-1 and the Kylie Jenner-approved adidas Falcon. That’s not all they’ve got cooking however, as the YUNG-96 — a modified take on the YUNG-1 — is set to drop tomorrow. Although the shoe does feature the same multi-paneled upper style and aggressive midsole detailing as the YUNG-1, it also offers a slightly sleeker take on classic retro styling so the wearer isn’t required to go full-on "dad mode."
The "Orca" colorway of this new silhouette features a striking split black and white look. About half of the upper — the tongue, throat, heel, toebox and lateral/medial midfoot — are dressed in a pitch-dark black, while an elegant white leather mudguard and midfoot panels offer a stark contrast. Blue jeweled logos on the tongue and heel provide branding, and the two-tone upper sits on top of an off-white midsole/outsole combo that offers striking detailing and completes the shoe’s look.
