adidas OZWEEGO

'90s nostalgia reimagined for today. Check out the adidas OZWEEGO, a shoe with a big personality played out in bold shapes and expressive lines.

adidas OZWEEGO Shoes

Originally introduced to the world in July 1996, the adidas OZWEEGO shoes were developed as a lightweight running shoe for training and competitive events. Considered the perfect blend of style and comfort by athletes, it had soft adiprene under the forefoot to cushion every step and an eye-catching upper that was slightly chunky by the exacting standards of today's athletic sneakers. The OZWEEGO's popularity led to the swift release of three further versions of the shoe by the turn of the century. After a 15-year hiatus a new re-imagined silhouette made its debut and, powered by a rekindled interest in '90s footwear fashion, it sparked a brand-new succession of releases.

The latest iterations of our perennially popular adidas OZWEEGO sneakers retain the original's eye-catching looks and bulky builds, but they up the comfort stakes with a combination of adiprene, adiprene+ and EVA in the midsole and a range of uppers — choose between textile, leather, synthetic leather and more — that hug your feet to offer a supportive ride. They're also available in a wide range of colours and sizes to fit men, women and juniors. Love '90s style but want up-to-date footwear technology too?

adidas OZWEEGO Frequently Asked Questions

adidas Originals OZWEEGO shoes typically run true to size. However, some wearers may find that they fit slightly large or slightly small depending on individual foot shape and preference. It's generally recommended to try them on in-store or check reviews for sizing guidance before purchasing.
adidas introduced OZWEEGO shoes in the late 1990s as performance runners. They were designed with a focus on providing comfort, cushioning and support for runners. The shoes featured innovative technologies for their time, such as adiprene cushioning for shock absorption and stability. More recently, adidas reintroduced the OZWEEGO as a lifestyle sneaker. The modern adidas OZWEEGO retains some of the design elements of the original, such as the chunky silhouette and distinctive panelling. But it's made to be a streetwear sneaker rather than a performance shoe for running.
In the '90s, the OZWEEGO was an innovative running shoe. However, current iterations are primarily lifestyle sneakers that don't have the specific design and support needed for running. Wear your OZWEEGO shoes to work, to the club or on stage. For running, choose shoes that were designed for the activity, such as those in the adidas performance running lines like Ultraboost and adizero.
