The adidas Equipment line made a grand return to the brand’s lineup in 2015 and has been an integral part ever since. Now, the Three Stripes is ready to introduce a new silhouette to the EQT Support family, dubbed the 91/18.
The new adidas EQT Support 91/18 is something special. The silhouette combines a number of past EQT sneakers, though the clearest source of inspiration is without a doubt the EQT Torsion from 1991. The classic model’s features are most notably spotted in the sidewall cages and newly retooled midsole, though we can get into that later. First, let’s break down the new shoe.
The EQT Support 91/18 with what appears to be a combined Primeknit and mesh base for the upper. The soft knit material takes over the toe box, which can be seen in grey on the “OG” green colorway. The flexible material extends onto each quarter panel to provide a more breathable fit, where they meet the structural support cages. Likely made from a stiff TPU plastic, these white and green pieces are used to ensure the shoe locks your foot in, similarly to the cages used on the Ultra Boost. For additional support, these cages are surrounded by a hollow suede square to help lock them in place as well as providing additional eyelets for the laces. The heel and ankle of the EQT Support 91/18 are constructed from a soft, durable mesh to keep your foot padded, yet able to move and breathe. Layers of suede and smooth leather are added on top to provide both texture and variable color blocking to the look.
Finally, the new Boost midsole. The adidas EQT 91/18 uses a full-length Boost midsole with several inserts to help provide a little more stability. First, the lateral side is decorated with two bricks very similar to the NMD’s, one in the toe and one closer to the heel. The heel piece wraps around the back of the shoe and stretches out through most of the medial side in a jagged line. Returning to the lateral side, the Three Stripes from the sidewall is extended onto the sole, though this time they are made from rubber and can be seen as support pieces from the 91/18’s outsole.
