In 1992, if you had anything about you, the trainer zeitgeist was still firmly in the "old school" camp with ’70s and ’80s wheels like Adidas Gazelle and Puma States worn by clubbers and casuals alike. Well, when they weren't wearing Blundstone or motorcycle boots. 

In the world of actual technical trainers, Adidas was throwing everyting at the Torsion range, thoough it didn't get much love on the street. Today, things are different. For some reason, Adidas' 90s trainers make sense now. That doesn't mean that true old school efforts (like the aforementioned Gazelle) can't be worn, it's just that chunky trainers like this, the newly re-released Torsion Integral work with today's trend for narrow jeans in the same way that New Balance's classics do. 

According to Adidas, the shoe features: “an injected EVA tooling with Torsion system and soft shell technology. The shoe provided optimal stability and cushioning for its running-obsessed advocates of the early ’90s”.

With two new, down-with-the-kids colourways joining the original, there's more than one reason to shell out on a pair if you're due a new pair of wheels. And we're always due new wheels at Umbrella.
