As sneakerheads may recall, not too long ago adidas Originals unveiled a “Burgundy Red” colorway of the EQT Support 93/17, which was revealed to be a JD Sports exclusive. This “Burgundy Red” iteration looked quite luxurious, with its Primeknit uppers dressed predominantly in a deep shade of Burgundy. Its Primeknit uppers also featured Grey-colored detailing, looking like an 8-bit pattern, while its heels were made up of matching Burgundy-colored suede. It was also equipped with TPU support cages, Ortholite sockliners, suede medial panels and BOOST midsoles. This time around, it seems adidas Originals is preparing to drop two EQT Support 93/17 colorways as a part of a “Welding” Pack.
The origin of the EQT Support 93/17 can be traced back to the adidas Originals SS17 EQT Collection that was unveiled and released at the beginning of 2017. With this collection, adidas basically revamped the classic Equipment footwear line from the 90s, giving it a modern twist. The EQT Support 93/17 was a brand new model, but the collection also included a modern variation of the classic EQT Support ADV as well. Also a part of the collection was the EQT Support ADV PK, EQT Support RF and the EQT Support Ultra. The identical colorway all of these silhouettes were dressed up in was dubbed “Turbo.”
It is uncertain why this latest collection of two EQT Support 93/17 colorways has been dubbed the “Welding” Pack, considering that the model does not really have anything to do with welding. As has been the case with this model, these EQT Support 93/17 iterations have breathable uppers made up of mesh and neoprene materials. Perhaps the “Welding” nickname is a reference to the fact that one side of each shoe has a textile panel stitched to it. One colorway is dressed up in Black and Orange, and the other in Grey, Turquoise and Off-White. Both colorways are also equipped with classic, plain White BOOST midsoles and Black-colored outsoles.
The adidas EQT Support 93/17 “Burgundy Red” already made its retail debut exclusively at JD Sports back in mid-November 2017 and retailed at a price of $180. As for this adidas EQT Support 93/17 “Welding” Pack, it has also begun to arrive at retailers on December 1st, 2017 and these two colorways should be available now.
