Olympic Sneakers and Shoes: Mens adiStar Sailing

Here in NYC there was a “special” report on sneakers. It looks like I wasn’t the only one who wanted to take a look at what the people in the Olympic are wearing on their feet. Anyway here is a sneaker that the row boat team (or somebody who is suppossed to be on the water) will be wearing. No laces, all zippers lol

Here are the details from the adidas shop site:

adiStar Sailing
Set sail single-handedly in these shoes that are light and supportive so you can ride the water. A neoprene upper with TPU bands keeps you in command. The wind never met such a match.
  • 3mm neoprene upper provides warmth, unrestricted movement and sock-like feel during summer sailing
  • Thin, welded elastic TPU bands for additional comfortable support without movement limitation
  • Optimal for RS:X, Laser, Finn Olympic classes
  • Speed Heel featuring RadialCurve contours, sculpted heel and midfoot for secure grip on wet decks
  • Sticky forefoot rubber cupsole with RadialCurve for superior multidirectional water traction
  • Imported

Its not a sneaker I think people will wear on the streets of NYC, but it does have style. Plus, its an odd thing to add to your sneaker collection, but that’s what makes you different. 🙂

The adiStar Sailing costs $75. Plenty of sizes available… of course lol
