Images and Release Info for adidas’ ‘Solar Bird’ Deerupt

We’ve known about adidas’ Deerupt for ages — loyal Three Stripe leakers made sure of that — but we’ve only just learned when we can get our hands on a pair.

This ‘Solar Bird’ — blaring ‘Solar Red’ and sharp ‘Bluebird’ — colourway will be the first to hit shelves.

With the announcement comes a full rundown of its inspiration. With design principles rooted in gridding, the Deerupt references retro runners like adidas New York and Marathon TR by taking their netting and exaggerating it.

The result is striking and hard to miss — well, as long you don’t miss the release date first. The ‘Solar Bird’ Deerupt will land on March 22.
