Guess I am old enough to remember
the first release of the Equipment-series in ~1992.
It was quite big, you couldn’t overlook the release
as there even were huge banners promoting them.
I’m not really sure which pairs were in the first series
but I remember that they all had a purpose:
-one for the neutral runner
-one for the supinators, that run on the inner side of the foot,
hence the more support on that side and the whole construction

-a pair for the overpronated gait,
that run on the outer side of the foot
-a pair that emphasises the cushioning,
maybe for heavier wearers

It was the first and to my knowledge
the only time a brand brought several top models in some context.
They have a huge fellowship in Germany
with people paying lots of money (200-500 €) for old pairs.
At least before the retros.
adidas messed up a bit on the retros of the Support ´93,
as they are shaped like a banana and fit huge.
But with a little bit of tweaking these look good
and give you the satisfaction of a cheap, wearable Equipment.
All of this is written from memory so if there are some mistakes,
Feel free to comment any corrections in the comments.
They reworked the retros so now they are much better
and getting a retro is close to getting an original.
