adidas launches a new silhouette, dubbed W Arkyn, and which can only be described as a fashion-forward futuristic sneaker. The addition to the company's footwear family comes in three colorways — White, Ash Pearl and Raw Steel. Each silhouette boasts a distinct sci-fi vibe and one can easily imagine the shoes as part of the set wardrobe for contemporary futurism-centric movies like Blade Runner.
The W Arkyn's space-like look can definitely be attributed to the footwear's alternative lace system, which also happens to be the piece's key design feature. However, adidas does not only focus on aesthetics for this futuristic sneaker silhouette. The W Arkyn comes with a breathable mesh upper and a BOOST midsole. The sock-like construction of the body ensures a snug fit, while the durable outsole boasts comfort.
