Adidas isn't a brand that shies away from giving its archival classics modern makeovers. Recently, this has been on display with the ADV and A//D Collections, each consisting of past models reimagined with 'futuristic' details. Now, the Originals category is turning its attention toward a shoe that was far ahead of its time—the Micropacer.
Released in 1984, the Micropacer was a computerized sneaker that tracked performance as it was being worn. Thirty-four years later, the model's advanced status holds up, but Adidas is hitting refresh and blending it with a current icon. The result is the Futurepacer, essentially a Micropacer-meets-NMD hybrid. The exaggerated tongue tech panel and general running shape are still there, but heel and Boost cushioning setup are borrowed from the NMD.
