After a good few months of speculation around release dates, and following on from the new Falcon release a couple of weeks back, adidas Originals are finally delivering on their word and releasing the first two initial colourways of the Yung-1.
A reconfigured version of the original Falcon Dorf training shoe from 1998, the updated Yung-1 is strikingly accurate in appearance as far as retro-releases go, albeit with a few branding tweaks that take the shoe away from the performance category and bring it into the Originals family. The first time around the Falcon sat in amongst an assortment of memorable shoes from the same era, including the Galaxy in all it’s different iterations, and runners from the iconic Equipment range.
Debuting in a duo of colour ways to introduce it back into the market, the Yung-1 arrives in a vibrant orange and navy combination (a reissue of one of the most well known colour ways of the OG) and slightly more subdued cream and ‘Ferrari’ red version. Torsion technology is still present and built within the midsole unit for advanced comfort and stability. All in all it’s a great sign of things to come from the brand, and there’s hopes that we might see a few more forgotten gems from the 90’s make a reappearance going forward.
Both colourways of the adidas Originals Yung-1 will be available via the size?previews app and in selected size? stores on Thursday 21st June, priced at £100.
