Trainer Of The Week – Adidas Torsion Allegra
Each week we will be speaking to our friends at The Drop Date and will ask them to pick their “Trainer Of The Week” to feature in our newsletter. There are no other rules other than we have to feature a new style each week, this week The Drop Date have chosen the Adidas Torsion Allegra and here is what they have to say about it.
“”We’re not going to pretend that we remember the Adidas Torsion Allegra (or its predecessor, the Allegra S) from its 1994 release date, but we will definitely confirm our love for these new retros that showed up at the start of 2013. We’ve had some time to sit and digest the Torsion Allegra and whilst the colour ways were bound to appeal, we’ve realised that under the cosmetic shell, there’s a great piece of footwear sitting beneath. Firstly, they’re light. Lighter than the layered panels might suggest, which is a nice surprise. The neoprene sock liner makes for a snug fit – snugger than most other running shoes around at the moment – but where many of the current athletic silhouettes have gone for the barefoot feel, these feel more sturdy underfoot.””
