Breathable Sporty Sandals

The Adilette from adidas is Made with the Brand's Primeknit Material

— May 8, 2017 — Fashion
In order to give its consumers more options for the summer, adidas recently released the 'Adilette,' slip-on sandals that are made with its popular Primeknit material.

Although the material is normally used to construct the uppers of athletic sneakers, it's inclusion on the straps of the Adilette makes them incredibly lightweight, breathable, and comfortable to wear. The soles of the slip-on sandals are made from similar material to the 'BOOST' model, which allows them to form to the wearer's feet and prevents them from slipping around as they walk.

The Adilette comes in two colorways: one that's black with adidas' three stripes complementing it in white, and another that's white with black stripes on the straps.
Trend Themes
1. Lightweight Slip-on Footwear - Create lightweight slip-on footwear using innovative materials for enhanced comfort and breathability.
2. Integration of Sneaker Materials in Sandals - Explore the integration of popular sneaker materials, like Primeknit, into sandal designs for a fusion of sporty aesthetics and comfort.
3. Form-fitting Sandal Soles - Develop sandal soles with materials that mold to the wearer's feet, providing better grip and preventing slippage.
Industry Implications
1. Sports Footwear - Sports footwear brands can leverage innovative materials and design features from sneakers to create comfortable and performance-enhancing sandals.
2. Athleisure - Athleisure brands can tap into the trend of merging sporty aesthetics with casual footwear by incorporating sneaker features into their sandal designs.
3. Outdoor Recreation - Outdoor recreation companies can explore lightweight and breathable slip-on sandals with improved grip and stability for hikers and adventurers.
