adidas is seriously taking over the sneaker game right now. The competition is trying to keep up but with the hybrid creations like the adidas EQT Support 93/17 "Turbo Red" adidas is making it really hard. This highly anticipated release was teased over and over again on social media. The internet buzz was tremendous and sneakerheads knew this sneaker would be harder to get than a pair of Jordans. After searching the web and talking to various connections, we were able to get our hands on a pair to do a comprehensive review.
The Silhouette - EQT Support 93/17
Garnering the most attention of the "Turbo Red" collection, the 93/17 is considered the most coveted. The equipment runner is a modern-day reinterpretation of the original 1993 EQT infused with adidas patent BOOST technology. This EQT Support comes dressed in a Primeknit upper done in black and grey glitch pattern. On the medial side, you will find multiple white stripes in vertical pattern along the inner toe box. As seen in all the images, a huge, chunky white BOOST sole provides the comfiest ride (In my opinion) of all BOOST'ed models you will ever wear. Subtle Three Stripes branding that is added to the lateral side comes in a classic EQT-esque ribbon fashion. The “EQT” dubraes come in black on the lateral side, while the turbo red hits are placed on the heel as well as on the medial side of the TPU heel cage. This modern designed model contains a green OrthoLite® sockliner, which adds to the ultra comfort of the sneaker. One missed opportunity comes in the form of the outsole - adidas decided not to use the Continental rubber. However, this does not take away from the durability and feel of the shoe. Overall, being an avid EQT collector, the adidas EQT Support 93/17 based on style and visual appeal alone, is a must-have. Modern lines, sleek appearance and great styling makes up this one of a kind sneaker.
On The Foot - EQT Support 93/17
On the foot the "Turbo Red" is the best feeling shoe, that we have put on our feet. The OrthoLite® sockliner complements the BOOST midsole perfectly. The TPU heel cage, locks you down and keeps the heel in place just in case of sudden changes in directions. The wrap style tongue maybe the only hiccup on the sneaker, adjusting it is hard and if you have a thicker foot, the tongue will not wrap around the upper portion of your foot completely. The adidas EQT Support 93/17 was worth the wait and trouble of trying to procure. We can not wait for more colorways and to see if more EQT models receive the BOOST treatment. Although this shoe is sold out everywhere, you can find pairs on reseller site like Stadium Goods or GOAT. Check out the images below, we put the EQT Support to work with a pair of our favorite joggers. Hit the comment section and let us know what you think.
Finally, finally, finally... We are able to finally bring to you a super exclusive review of the HEX x Stance Sneaker Duffel bag. I do a lot of traveling and have found that over time I have collected several duffel bags. Duffels are my type of "go-to" bag when I am trying to traveling light and traveling right. Again, if you have never heard us say it, but we absolutely love HEX and their products. We support their movement and hopefully in the near future carry their products in our webstore.
As we previously wrote, this sneaker duffel is definitely reaching out to the sneakerheads that plans their outfits around their sneakers, much like myself. If you travel and do not want to carry extra bags but also want to have a couple pairs of shoes with you.... this is your bag. The sneaker duffel includes a compartment for sneakers as well as mesh pockets for your socks. The sneaker compartments are lined specifically in mind to reduce odor from traveling into the duffel. They also seemed to think of all functionalities when traveling: In the the center of the bag, there is a compartment for clothes and a faux-fur-lined laptop pocket that can fit up to a 13" laptop. The shell of the duffel is constructed in resistant nylon with heavy, surplus grade web strapping for durability. The finishing touches to this multi-functional duffel has to be the details HEX and Stance put into the ID pocket, custom zipper pulls, detachable straps and luggage-style feet to keep it off the ground.
An amazing bag that handles the toughness of travel. If not the top bag in my collection, it comes very close. HEX has a great selection of products ranging from bags to phone cases and each one is made with outstanding quality. In the meantime, this bag is available at Stance.com as well as Hexbrand.com. Stay tuned to Common-Crown.com/Blog for all things HEX and more information on Stance products.
