Adidas has a long history of trendsetting, and the ClimaCool is direct evidence of this. It’s a meshed out model that existed when leather and suede ran the game and to help it better reflect the times they’ve given it a bit of retooling.

Seen here are the OG and its predecessor. The adidas ClimaCool 1 is chock full of all of its original flavor including plastic paneling that provides both support and ventilation. The ClimaCool 20/17, on the other hand, has been slimmed down and souped up with a feel more aligned with the current crop of runners on the market today.
