Originally worn by Terry Fox during 143 days of charity fundraising for cancer, adidas re-published their historic Orion silhouette. Careful to preserve the design basics of its 70s debut, the sneakers come in a subtle combination of White that contrasts with the tasteful Navy base.
Featuring a mud toe guard that is raised from the like-minded SL80, a blend of lightweight nylon and suede to the top ensures the perfect balance between breathability and stability. Reinforced with Three Stripes on the sides, Gold Metallic ‘Orion’ callout and classic trefoil on the tongue, the sleek yet responsive EVA foam midsole provides plenty of all-day comfort.
Take a closer look below, and you can find adidas Orion “Collegiate Navy” available at select retailers such as Aphrodite and possibly soon on adidas.com. The retail price tag is set at $ 90 USD.
