This year's Olympics Series from adidas is pretty great. Their fencing shoe from the 1964 games in Tokyo, however, was pretty genius.
In limited numbers this distinctive shoe comes in a metallic mesh with contrasting vinyl and rubber trims in true representation of the fencing sport. The hexagonal stamped sole features large ‘cut outs’ at critical pressure points ensuring the wearer is completely balanced and aware of their environment. An asymmetrical foxing protects and supports the inside of the foot with the adidas 3 stripes only featuring on the outer side.
