Originally worn by Terry Fox during his 143-day charity fundraising run for cancer, adidas reissue their historic Orion silhouette. Taking care to preserve the fundamentals of its debut ’70s design, the sneakers arrive in a subdued combination of contrasting white set out against a tasteful base of deep navy.
Featuring a toe cap mudguard lifted from the like-minded SL80, a lightweight mixture of nylon and suede to their uppers ensures the perfect balance between breathability and stability. Bolstered with three stripes to the sides, a metallic gold ‘Orion’ callout, and a classic trefoil to the tongue, a responsive yet sleek EVA foam midsole gives plenty of all-day comfort.
Below, check out more images of the adidas Orion ‘Collegiate Navy’ that will give you a closer look. For those that are interested, they are available now at shops like Aphrodite and soon on adidas.com. The retail price is $90.
