adidas introduces the adiFOM Q.
Straying from traditional sneaker construction, foam clogs and slides have dominated the trends as of late thanks to the likes of the Yeezy Foam RNNR and Salehe Bembury's Crocs Pollex Clog. While the Yeezy brand is under the adidas umbrella, it looks like they have their own mainline clog under development with the adidas adiFOM Q.
Similar to the recently revealed Jordan System.23, the silhouette contains a foam exoskeleton with an internal sock-like bootie. Pictured are three prototypes of what will eventually be the adiFOM Q, one of which was previously believed to be a Foam RNNR V2 due to its similar shape and cutouts around the upper. However, according to adidas, the adiFOM Q takes inspiration from the adidas Quake from 2001.
The punchouts around what are traditionally the eyestays of a silhouette house laces that work into the sock-like portion, though these likely are for aesthetic purposes. The tongue features an orange Trefoil logo on the side with another splash of color coming on the collar. An all-black pair was presented as well with its sock-like upper appearing to be the same as an adidas Yeezy 450, though these photos come from the Creators Lab and are likely just a test. This all-black look alongside an all-white version has a more aggressive design with sharper lines and an outsole with light traction.
The adidas adiFOM Q is still in development, though a release in late 2022 or early 2023 is possible. For updates on the most recent clog-inspired silhouette from adidas and more, keep it locked to our Twitter and Mobile App for future releases.
