The running revival of 2013 doesn’t stop short, providing yet another amazing re-make from adidas’ early ’90s archive: the adidas Torsion Integral S.
Originally produced in 1992, the adidas Torsion Integral S has become a favorite of many vintage runner collectors, including the incredibly well-versed Jerzy Majewski, who (in a previous interview with us here at eatmoreshoes) claimed that it’s his favorite Trefoil trainer of all time, thanks to the design and comfort it provides.
He also makes note to the fact the original colorway is the black and blue iteration, one that returned among two others as a part of adidas’ re-release schedule in the Fall and Winter of 2013. This is a big deal, not only because we’re seeing fresh new faces on our familiar, old school friend (such as the purple pair pictured here and also a silver edition as well), but also because this is the first time the shoe is coming back to consumers in a modern make.
Despite the revival, the design and comfort stay as Jerzy enjoyed them, just like in the OG version. But that’s not all: a week before their release on the 15th of November, Sneaker Freaker dropped their first ever adidas collaboration at their launch in Melbourne, a pack featuring two Torsion Integral S trainers, one minty fresh one designed by Woody himself, and the other pinkish pair by Otto and the rest of the adidas Consortium team.
So in total, that leaves a full five colorways for runner lovers to chase down from November (and December, considering the international release of the ‘Up Over, Down Under’ Pack was delayed one month) of 2013, and knowing adidas Originals we can certainly expect more innovative iterations of the Integral S to come.
