Back when the ADIDAS ORIGINALS MICROPACER first released in 1984, we were mesmerised. A shoe with a COMPUTER in it? Although the technology might seem a little out of date today, the principle lives on – and it’s this model that paved the way for many of the subsequent releases we’ve seen since. If you’ve ever timed your running speed before setting off on your morning jog, you might want to give this shoe a nod of respect.
Take the technical aspects away and the Micropacer remains one of the smartest-looking shoes out there. Silver uppers, a shoelace cover to keep things slick and that lovely silhouette that retains the best parts of the basic adidas running shape… It’s no wonder that the Micropacer is still on many afficionados’ top ten lists. In honour of the model’s 30th birthday, adidas are bringing it back as an exact 1:1 replica of the original shoe. A rare chance to scoop a fresh edition of one of the most important runners of all-time.
The ADIDAS ORIGINALS MICROPACER drops on SATURDAY AUGUST 16th: and will be available via the link-through below.
