After suddenly appearing on all Instagram channels for Paris Fashion Week, everyone was wondering when and where can I buy this adidas Yung 1? To our suffering we had to wait a relatively long time for the orange bulky sneaker. The white colourway wasn’t even released until more than half a year later.
The hype that adidas generated with the seeding was enormous and continues to this day! It just fits so well into the zeitgeist that everyone buys one of these sneakers and then also sprints. While the testimonials from the 3-Stripes used to rock more prestigious releases like Yeezys or Consortium launches, adidas has also made it into the closets of people like Kendall Jenner, Famous Dex and Pusha-T with the Falcon. Responsible for this is the 90s design, which is inspired by the adidas Falcon Village. Compared to the original, the shoe mentioned here is kept a bit narrower, which gives it a slightly more contemporary shape.
In addition to celebrities, established stores such as Size?, Solebox and Sneakersnstuff have already expressed their appreciation for the chunky sneaker and each released a co-designed, exclusive colorway. On co-branding was already allowed to look forward only End. Clothing could look forward to. Another popular colorway, though not quite a collabo, was the Yung Frieza, which came as one of 7 styles as part of the Dragon Ball Z drop.
Actually, the styling is quite simple: Just like you would wear a Yeezy 500 or 700. The overall look of the shape is very reminiscent of the much more expensive models, without looking too clunky. Let’s face it, every foot looks a little bigger in the Yeezy 500, which is unnecessary in the Yung-1. So if you like chunky sneakers but aren’t too extroverted on the feet, the Yung-1 is a good option for you.
