adidas Originals maintain their future forward propensity for reviving and then remixing classic sportswear and performance silhouettes in recent seasons. Lines such as the ZX and NMD series made waves in a big way, with a large appetite and desire for these remixed bring-backs and inspired designs. As such, adidas have sought to delve into the inexplicably organised and extensive archives of the Three-Stripes and expand their reinvented Tubular series. What initially yielded the Tubular Runner, the avant-garde motifs of the original we're amplified and maximised. Doing away with conformity, adidas Originals sought to re-engineer the multi-density chamber runner for a bold, contemporary look and feel. Enter the adidas Tubular Doom & Tubular Shadow.

Just as the original Tubular Runner from 1993 was a game changer - what with a inflatable rubber chamber that could be inflated or deflated to a customised pressure - the Tubular Shadow and Tubular Doom of today mimics the spirit of the original in creating an all new silhouette with a bold design language. The Tubular Shadow creates the latest effusion of sports style footwear, borrowing elements from the adidas Yeezy series on the upper with a familiar knit, lace-row and shape stitched together in the fashion of a decoupled mesh bootie. The updated EVA midsole, reimagined from the original Tubular concept, embeds an exposed core in the centre, surrounded with a unique tube shape on the outer to deliver a unique sensation on-foot.

The adidas Tubular Doom PK combines Three-Striped design heritage and innovation with contemporary styled aesthetics. The sock-like Primeknit edition sports a reflective Primeknit upper with wide elastic forefoot and quarter bands that provides a custom fit and avant-garde looks while a textile lacerow and heel wrap provide deconstructed comfort. An extended sock-like collar sports a branded pull tab for easier on/off, continuing the appeal of deconstructed comfort. Cushioned by a tube-like, rippled EVA foam outsole that provides lightweight flexibility and traction, the dual density unit delivers iconic Three-Striped detailing while pushing the future of adidas sport-style.
