EQT, short for adidas equipment, was built for purpose and essential for the athlete. adidas EQT clothing was introduced as functional style evolved.

The adidas EQT line is one of our most storied and celebrated franchises. They’ve been spotted on athletes and celebrities alike, from Pusha T to Jay Z, Bieber, Keyshawn Johnson and Kobe. People have been rocking them up and down the streets, on the court and even on the red carpet. But what does adidas EQT mean?


The intent behind EQT was to design a shoe solely to meet athletes’ needs as a piece of equipment by offering only the essentials of performance, protection and comfort, while stripping away everything that’s not necessary. In the late ‘80s and popularized in the early ‘90s, the minimal style was truly disruptive. Today, EQT continues to disrupt through game-changing iterations.

The latest generation of EQT celebrates its retro roots with a modern makeover that offers streamlined silhouettes, knit uppers and temperature-regulating Outlast® Sock Liners to ensure you’re equipped for anything.
