In a nostalgic nod to the turn of the millennium, adidas Originals is traveling back in time with their latest release: the 2000s Running Collection. Venturing deep into the adidas archive, this collection offers one-to-one remakes of some of the most iconic running silhouettes from the early 2000s, alongside a new contender designed to bridge the gap between then and now.

The Then and Now

When we think of adidas, we immediately envision timeless style staples perfect for everyday wear. However, in this era of reimagined classics, where vintage vibes are the currency of cool, adidas is leading the pack with their latest take on archival classics—the same trend they pioneered in the 2000s.

The adidas Ozmillen

Step into the reimagined world of iconic 2000s runners with the adidas Ozmillen. Drawing inspiration from the Ozweego of the 2000s running archive, this sneaker evolves from the past to embrace the future. 

Infused with the experimental side and aesthetics of that timeless era, the Ozmillen boasts metallic overlays, mesh uppers, and a distinctive two-tone color palette. Yet, it’s not all about nostalgia; modern-day technology shines with Adiplus cushioning, ensuring wearers will always stride with confidence.

 Styling the adidas Ozmillen

Out with the old notion that these silhouettes are solely for running; the Ozmillen is the new must-have in any sneaker lineup. Offering style without compromising comfort, you’ll find something for every ensemble. From athleisure to laidback looks or that trending preppy Y2K-inspired aesthetic you see on Pinterest, this pair has you covered.

If you’re taking inspiration from the iconic looks of the Year 2000, style the adidas Ozmillen with your casual or oversized T-shirts, effortlessly creating a stylish statement when paired with jeans, shorts, or skirts. Of course, don’t forget the power of a good monochrome moment, where you can let the adidas Ozmillen be your canvas, coordinating these trendy sneakers with your clothing for a bold and cohesive OOTD.

If you’re reviving the textbook definition of Y2K, simply color block, follow the big bottom and little top fashion formula, and you’re good to go. Remember: When in doubt, wear sneakers.

The adidas Adistar
