Adidas has been taking its shoe game to a whole new level this year, and it doesn’t look like it’s going to slow down anytime soon. The Climacool 1 has been reinstated to the adidas roster. This shoe hasn’t seen the shelves since the early 2000s, but it’s back in full force returning as a classic.
The original 2002 Climacool shoe was designed for running, and it was one of the first running shoes to feature breathable ventilation, which has become a staple for today’s performance shoes. Today, the Climacool 1 has some of the same features as the original runner, but it’s coming back revamped with a causal twist.
It features low tops lined with a textured, tech-inspired mix of materials — ventilating Climacool and ADIPRENE+ in the forefoot to absorb shock. The Climacool 1’s breathable design takes features from the midsole and heel of the ZX running series. Underneath the stretchy, breathable mesh base, the midsole is lightweight with the perfect amount of cushioning to keep you feeling comfortable all day long.
But wait, we haven’t gotten to the coolest part. The Climacool 1 features vents on vents on vents (also known as the 360-degree cooling system) that gives the shoe its unique look. Looking cool is not the only function of the 360-degree system. It gives your feet superior ventilation to keep them cooler than the other side of the pillow.
Need a shoe for summer that guarantees to keep your feet light and fresh? Don’t sweat it. Eastbay has you covered with the adidas Climacool 1 — available in five colors.
