Drawing inspiration from its heritage, adidas has released a new trail running sneaker called the XTR Adventure.

Not many sneakerheads may remember the EQT XTR, but the EQT Adventure is essentially a modernized version of that silhouette. The XTR featured a rugged, aggressive design that made it look like it was ready to tackle the toughest of terrain. The Adventure is a sleeker, more elegant approach yet still embodies the spirit of its predecessor. The shoe isn't available just yet, but Germany's 43einhalb has them listed as "coming soon" on their site. After conversion, retail is roughly $180. No word on a Stateside release, but if you're interested in copping, take the initiative and contact your local adidas retailers.
