The Three Stripes Brand is re-introducing, the adidas Originals Tubular Runner. This stylish and futuristic sneaker is inspired by the adidas Tubular 2 runner that released back in 1993. The modern, high fashion mix of leather and neoprene on the upper is complemented by the tube-like outsole, sleek overlays, and single piece build. While this retro runner has been compared to the likes of the Y-3 Qasa, ZX Flux, and even the SL Loop Runner, the designer and adidas VP of Global Design, Nic Galway, has crafted a casual, street-ready model that's in a category of its own. Love it or hate it, the adidas Tubular is here and does an amazing job of further blending fashion and function.
