A classic runner, which nods to another EQT Cushion, all about Comfort
23 years later, The EQT is back
After visits to New York, San Francisco, and Berlin the fourth destination on the adidas Consortium Tour 2016 is London.
For this collaboration, Footpatrol nods to adidas’ history of London inspired footwear. Its EQT Running Cushion 93 is designed with a color palette and detailing reminiscent of the legendary adidas London runner.
Now for a bit of history. The Equipment line was first launched in the early 90s. adidas’ aim was to take things back to basics, to focus on pure performance; to make a running shoe that really worked for runners. By 1993, the Equipment line had various footwear models designed to cater to every type of runner: the Support for supinators; the Guidance for pronators; the stripped-back Racer, and the Cushion, a more supportive model designed to offer all-round comfort.
23 years later, running and running models have evolved, but adidas’ attitude towards performance footwear remains unchanged. The EQT Cushion model has enjoyed a renaissance with a modern generation of sneaker wearers. Nowadays, it speaks to those who like to keep it basic and prefer to keep things understated.
The Footpatrol EQT Running Cushion 93 is released on April 30 in store only at The Good Will Out / Händelstr. 41 / 50674 Cologne / 11 AM.
