Adidas — Torsion Technology

Sneaker Shown: adidas ZX 8000

Year: 1988

Not to be overlooked, adidas' revolutionary Torsion technology allows for supreme stability in the midsole of the sneaker. So that there isn't too much stress on the heel of the foot, the Torsion system in effect supports the midfoot while the forefoot undergoes linear and lateral movement. Imagine if we had Torsion technology to deal with life's ills? Oh yeah, that's what friends are for!
