A Closer Look at the Adidas Foam-Based adiFOM Q

Adidas Foam-Based adiFOM Q

Over the past few years, the sneakers world has been dominated by clogs and slides, which are now considered to be the most trending fashion in footwear. In response to this new sneaker era, Adidas has decided to release the Yeezy sliders and Yeezy Foam Runner in partnership with the American celebrity Kanye West. The most recent release by the German footwear brand is the new Foam-based adiFOM Q sneaker. After several images of this shoe were leaked on various social media platforms, the brand Adidas released an official statement saying the adiFOM Q is a crafted foam based on a 2001 Yeezy Foam Runner -the Adidas Quake. However, the main difference between the two sneakers is that the new adiFOM Q has a comfy interior lining that can be worn with the sneaker; the adiFOM Q is more of a wearable exoskeleton. In this article, we will take a closer look at the new Adidas Foam-Based adiFOM Q sneaker.


Expected to make its first debut later this year, the German footwear brand plans to drop a new silhouette – the Adidas Foam-Based adiFOM Q sneaker. Before its official launch, Adidas went to Twitter and gave its fans a preview of the sneaker, displaying what the sneaker would feature. Born in 2001, the 2022 adiFOM Q sneaker draws some inspiration from a crafted foam launched almost two decades ago- the Adidas Quake sneaker. According to Sneakernews, Adidas took to Twitter and posted that they are releasing a new foam-based sneaker known as the adiFOM Q. Although there are some similar design features used in the YEEZY Foam Runner, the overall design of the 2022 adiFOM Q silhouette is based on the archival 2001 Adidas Quake. The 2022 Adidas Foam-based adiFOM Q sneaker features cutout windows perfectly with similar shapes borrowed from the overlays of the 2001 Quake. Based on the sneaker previews, the new adiFOM Q sneaker will be presented in a natural off-white tone with decent orange accents.

Earlier this month, the American rap music star Kanye West took to his social media platform and called out the new Adidas adiFOM Q sneaker as a "Fake Yeezy." Although this new silhouette features similar design features as Kanye's Yeezy Foam Runner, the German brand responded to these allegations. It claimed their 2022 adiFOM Q sneaker draws inspiration from their previous sneaker launched two decades ago- the 2001 Adidas Quake. Like the 2001 Quake, the new adiFOM Q foam upper is adorned with wave-like patterns across the medial and lateral portions of the sneaker. However, the main difference between these two amazing sneakers is that the Adidas Quake has the AdiPrene+ cushioning. At the same time, the 2022 adiFOM Q uses the same foam material on its sole for the upper.

Adidas Foam-Based adiFOM Q Design

According to Solecollector, the 2022 Adidas adiFOM Q sneaker comes presented in a distinctive off-white tone exterior perfectly blended with lightweight EVA dynamic lines and cutouts for sneaker breathability. The foam exterior shells feature cutouts from the sneaker's traditional lacing system and an eye-catching Adidas Trefoil logo at the rear side of the shoe. In addition to the stylish exterior, the new Adidas foam-based adiFOM Q shoe has a boot-like Primeknit interior accentuated with tongues that perfectly highlight an orange/gray color palette. The highly-anticipated sneaker is available in the off-white colorway, allowing you to rock these fantastic sneakers with your regular outfits. Great news to all fashion enthusiasts, the new Adidas foam-based adiFOM Q sneaker has a sculpted exterior of lightweight EVA adorned with dynamic cutouts and lines all over the sneakers to provide proper shoe ventilation.

Reported to be inspired by the 2001 Adidas Quake, the 2022 adiFOM Q is designed with a very comfy interior lining that can be worn with a sneaker. This feature is also a notable difference from Kanye West's Yeezy Foam Runner. The new foam-based adiFOM Q can be described as a wearable exoskeleton presented by Converse x A-COLD-WALL. The first offering of the adiFOM Q sneaker was first presented in a predominant gray colorway, with subtle touches of red on the sneaker's Trefoil logo. This sneaker entails cutout windows with similar shapes to the overlays of the 2001 Adidas Quake. While a wearable sock-like boot makes the adiFOM Q interior, it has been reported that the new foam-based adiFOM Q will be available in a natural off-white colorway with decent orange accents and the signature Trefoil logo on the sneaker's tongue.

Foam-Based adiFOM Q Official Release Information

Unfortunately, the official release information of the Adidas foam-based adiFOM is yet to be announced, but it is expected to be released later this year. Earlier this month, the German footwear brand recently stirred controversy when the American celebrity Kanye West publicly accused the brand's new adiFOM Q sneaker design of being similar to his Yeezy Foam Slides. Adidas responded to these allegations on Twitter and claimed that their 2022 Adidas adiFOM Q sneaker design was inspired by the 2001 Adidas Quake. Although it is pretty undeniable that the adiFOM Q sneaker design showcases some similarities to Kanye West's Yeezy Foam Runner as it features the same foam-based construction on the upper down to the sole. The notable difference between Kanye's Yeezy Foam Runner and Adidas adiFOM Q is that the latter has a mesh interior and shoelaces. In addition to owning the Yeezy Foam slides, the Three Stripes brand is famously known for producing quality slides, placing them at the forefront of the sneaker market. Adidas claimed that the 2022 adiFOM Q is made entirely of quality foam and features the same sneaker designs as their 2001 Quake. Featuring a classic inner lining, the adiFOM Q is more of a sneaker exoskeleton and less of a clog. According to Hype Beast, the 2022 Adidas foam-based adiFOM Q will be available for sale at the brand's official website and selected Adidas retailers later in this year.

Bottom Line

With the highly anticipated release of the 2022 Adidas foam-based adiFOM Q sneaker, you will be amazed by its unique features. Despite the controversies associated with the sneaker's design, the forthcoming is the most-sought after foams on the market. Based on the released images, the new adiFOM Q sneaker is a unique silhouette featuring stunning looks and designs. This sneaker is also very comfortable and has a perfect fit.
