A product of the early 2000s, the adidas Response CL has become a go-to show among fans of the unshakeable “dad shoe” trend that first caught steam a few years ago. Puerto Rico’s Bad Bunny is set to launch his own take on the adiPrene-cushioned sneakers, which will surely bring massive attention to the silhouette, but before he does, the Three Stripes is outfitting the model in its own classic “White/Black” colorway.
A high-quality mix of nylon, mesh, leather and suede come together to form a retro-inspired upper that feels “current” in today’s sneaker climate. Profile 3-Stripes introduce glossy plastic into the mix, as well as a silver that also takes over hardware and other detailing throughout the sneaker. The adidas Originals team seemingly looked at some of their most iconic releases from the last seven decades for the Response CL’s color-blocking, which features shades of white throughout most of the shoe and a notably “Black” application towards and around the heel. Midsoles opt for an “aged” look and are coupled with multi-colored Adiwear, Formotion and Torsion technology underfoot.
Enjoy official images of the pair here below, and expect a quiet adidas.com launch in the coming weeks.
