Retro runners in a new look: the shoe déjà vu
Wondering what makes a Retro Runner? It's simple: such a shoe is a new edition of a sneaker that has already been released in the past. A Retro Runner is, so to speak, an original in a new, fresh look. The original design is usually not changed much except for the color, the upper or inner material and small applications. Therefore, it's no wonder that some of the iconic kicks already look familiar to you.
Yesterday's shoes? No way! We celebrate the Retros because they took the sneaker game to a whole new level with their features and revolutionized the athletics world for good. A foamed midsole, gel cushioning, waffle tread and air cushioning in the midsole provide the perfect grip while running and an inimitable comfort that we wouldn't want to miss under any circumstances. Above all, the iconic silhouettes of the Asics Gel range score here with brand-typical support, innovative outsole and comfortable fit especially for runners.
The trendy retro runners for men and women are available as low-tops in various colorways and give your outfit a real 90s vibe in line with the current trend with wide jeans and oversized shirts. Bright color contrasts and a mix of suede and synthetic textile material make the trainers a statement piece. Not only does it look nice, but it's also ultra comfortable thanks to the slightly thicker yet functional outsole with cushioning.
These brands celebrate the comeback of the Retro Runner

We've picked out a few styles that will add some real retro vibes to your everyday outfit with jeans and a sweater.
adidas: The retro runners with daily driver potential
adidas - the brand with the three stripes - has already released several retro sneakers. Among the best runners are the adidas ZX 500, the adidas TRX Vintage and, as the name suggests, the adidas Retrorunner. The ZX 500 had its birth in the 80s and with its unagitated, clean design is a tribute to the legendary running shoe styles of the brand.
The upper convinces with a material combination with synthetic mesh and nylon, the EVA midsole with a strong shape. Similar and no less in demand is the minimalist adidas TRX Vintage, which comes straight from the 70s. Finally, the adidas Retrorunner combines influences from both decades.
Whether the shoes have an upper made of synthetic or natural textile materials, all Retro Runners from adidas have one thing in common: the three stripes on the side. In some cases, they provide wild color contrasts, while the lacing and outsole promise firm support and comfort.
