OWN THE NIGHT: The adidas Nite Jogger
The adidas Nite Jogger looks to follow in the footsteps (pun intended) of its successful retro-inspired sneaker brethren. The Three Stripes has done it in the past with silhouettes such as the NMD and the Continental 80 – sneakers that took bits and pieces of models from the past while specifically being designed for today and the future.
Born in 1979, the Nite Jogger was one of the sneakers that marked adidas growing popularity in the world of casual trainers. In a world obsessed with MTV and fitness, the Nite Jogger saw culture and sport meet in one sneaker. It was a sneaker that looked good with running shorts and tube socks, but also looked rad in ripped jeans and your favorite ACDC t-shirt. Adidas looks to channel that cool once again albeit in a techy update.
The Brand With Three Stripes pegs the Nite Jogger for the night-time creator – the genius that lights up when the lights go out. Built specifically for the night, the Nite Jogger promises that ‘it’s never too late’. Creativity strikes at any given moment. For some it’s in the middle of the night when they’re out running, trying to squeeze as much creative juices from their mind and their soul and that’s who adidas is connecting with.
For its fortieth birthday, the Nite Jogger is given a breath of fresh air - modern tooling in the form of Boost cushioning and premium materials. Ripstop, suede and mesh make up the upper, while reflective detailing is scattered all over the sneaker that channels the retro style of the 80s.
The Nite Jogger is built slim but not too thin. But it’s also not as chunky as some of the dad shoes that are everywhere nowadays. It’s just the right amount of heft that you’d expect in a sneaker that promises both style and comfort and not one over the other.
Capital will be releasing the Nite Jogger in both men’s and women’s sizing. The guys will be able to experience the silhouette in this clean and icy white colorway that’ll go well with a ton of outfits.
The ladies on the other hand are in for a treat, as the Nite Jogger will release in three women’s exclusive colorways. Black, grey and proprietary hi-res yellow make up the slated Nite Joggers for the female sneakerheads out there. I can already imagine how the women will style these kicks up and I’m excited for the looks the ladies will serve up.
