adidas Originals presents two Tubular silhouettes in their most rugged, winter-ready form yet for a brand new release this November.
Inspired by the defensive vests used in military operations, these new releases of the Tubular Rise and Tubular 2.0 models feature integrated Kevlar fibers in the upper, adding a higher level of durability and stealth to the Tubular series’ distinctive visual mode.
This is then countered by premium materials to add structure and form to the design. For the Tubular Rise, this takes the form of luxury suede side panels and an elastic heel strap, finished with a minimalist lacing system and the shoe’s distinctive two-tone midsole unit.
For the Tubular 2.0, the next generation silhouette’s unique panel design counters the Kevlar-integrated textile with plush, pebbled nubuck, supported by a molded TPU heel counter and a ribbed textile collar. This is then rounded off with an understated cross-toebox lace system and a signature Tubular textured outsole.
True to the military-inspired roots of their designs, each shoe in the release is rendered in a blacked-out colorway with subtle tonal accents, creating a high-spec iteration of two of adidas’ most fearless silhouettes.
