adidas Originals P.O.D. System

adidas Originals introduces their latest with the P.O.D. System, a new silhouette inspired by a collective of blended technologies. This innovative style translates a technical runner into a new sneaker for the street.

The foundation of the P.O.D. System takes its cue from a unique three-dimensional cushioning design principal first seen in mid-90’s running technology, ‘Point of Deflection System’. A system designed to benefit the runner, the technology provided shock absorption and stability in the outsole at the point of impact.

Built with the intent to enhance natural motion, adidas BOOST technology is focused on the heel unit, redirecting emphasis to the most important area of the foot for optimal stride. A pronounced ‘Point of Deflection’ bridge inspired by the ‘90s torsion bar is applied across the midfoot providing stability and flexibility to the podular sole allowing for ease of motion.

The P.O.D. System celebrates the interplay between the shoe’s unique tooling, contemporary technology and distinct aesthetic a testimony to a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. T

he P.O.D. will release in store this Saturday the 16th of June at our Lower Grounds Store from 11am with remaining pairs releasing online from 12pm the same day.

Sizes US7 through to US13 and all half sizes from US7.5 through to US11.5 for $200.

This hefty coat is constructed from Gold Shetland lambs wool, and provides a stylish yet fun winter option, which perfectly pairs with epitome of comfort that is the Velva Sheen Golden Chief Tee - as seen here in green.

With such a strong statement being made on top, a beautifully simplistic approach was taken to the lower half with the classic stylings of an orSlow 107 Slim Fit Jean - One Wash. Providing a tapered leg for modern stylings, utilising Japanese selvage denim, and finishing the look with their signature white tab, this jean will serve you well all year round.
