The adidas FYW 98 is a recognizable throwback to the iconic '90s era: mesh and leather overlays, loud white, red & navy combination colour blocking panels, the subtle contrast stitching on the tongue. It just has that retro feel that makes you reminisce to the back-in-the-days. When you were shopping with your moms and you wanted the shoes that made you feel like you could outrun the fastest kid on the block. "Go ahead, try them on and walk around the store with them for a bit." the salesman said. Never mind that additional comfort the AdiPrene sole offered your feet. Never mind the added stability and flexibility that the Torsion technology brings. You don't care about any of that right now, that's something you can worry about when you're in your thirties.
