The chunky dad shoe trend is well and alive as adidas is one of the front-runners leading the wave with shoes like the all-new adidas Yung-1.

Inspired by the weird and wonderful footwear designs of the early millennium, the Yung-1’s aggressive aesthetic encapsulates the spirit of early 2000s sportswear. This week, adidas Originals renders the shoe in a classic rendition that brings those qualities to the forefront. True to the tech of the era that inspired it, the Yung 1 silhouette features a classic mesh construction with nubuck structural overlays and a wealth of embroidered details. This is countered by a classic EVA midsole with dynamic tooling and a two-tone palette, finished with a durable tricolor rubber outsole.

For its colorway, the latest outing of the Yung-1 sneaker assumes a classic Collegiate Navy/Red/White colorway inspired by a ‘90s running model from the adidas archive. Trefoil branding on the tongue adds the finishing touch, culminating in a bold retro-inspired runner that places classic millennial design language into a clean new context.

The adidas Yung-1 will be releasing online and at select adidas Originals retailers on June 21st for $120.
