One of Adidas’ most beloved and durable models (and our SSOTY for 2015), the Suciu ADV seemed like a perfect shoe… until it seemingly got better.
The first new model of 2018 is the revamped Suciu ADV 2, pulling from the spirit of the prior model and creating what appears to be an even better foot-hugger. Coming off as more standard in shape than the original, the new toecap, cushioning, collar and breathability may very well improve on what we assumed was unbeatable.
Suciu himself revealed more detail of the shoe’s conception by saying:
“Slimming down the shoe and making the toe all one panel helps with the flick, I think. For inspiration, I looked back on the Lakai Manchester, Bryan Herman’s G-Code Emerica, and the Moray, an old shoe from Habitat Footwear.”
Telling by the list of shoes he took inspiration from, the Suciu ADV 2 looks like it’ll be on a number of people’s feet in 2018. We’ll keep you updated once we put some time in on it. The Suciu ADV 2 is available now for $80 at local shops & online.
