Model: Adidas Ozelia
Approx. price: S$140
Rooted in the ‘90s: The Adidas Ozelia reflects the brand’s experimental releases back in the 1990s. The bold colors, wavy upper and organic midsole reference sneakers from Kobe’s signature line and Feet You Wear basketball silhouettes.
Its design is not the only element taken from the ‘90s. The Adidas Ozelia comes with a full-length Adiprene midsole like those seen with the Ozweego. The renewed Adiprene foam offers near Boost-like comforts and a plush step-in feel.
Retro yet green: The Adidas Ozelia is partly made from recycled materials. Close to 20% of the upper is made from materials that are, at minimum, made from 50% recycled content.
