Norse Projects and adidas Consortium’s new Torsion TRDC sneaker reflects the spectrum of Scandinavian autumn

Scandi-minimalism with hits of reflective materials.

Words: Johan Magnusson

In the Torsion TRDC silhouette by adidas Consortium and Norse Projects, the muted tones throughout the mesh upper, with its suede, nylon and plastic overlays, reflect the spectrum of Scandinavian autumn.

Hits of reflective materials at the tongue and sides, as well as bright yellow at the outsole, offer low visibility presence. The textured EVA midsole conceals a special AdiPRENE heel component for a cushioned yet structured ride. The eponymous stabilizing Torsion System allows the trail runner to adapt comfortably to uneven terrain. An integrated tape lacing cage doubles as a 3-stripes appliqué, while an ombré midsole effect, reflective rope laces and a rubber outsole round out the details.
