RICH YUNG REPORT: Winter Craftsmanship pack x Adidas Originals


As part of their winter craftsmanship pack, adidas Originals presents two timeless models receiving a lux treatment. Designed in collaboration with Grand Slam champion Rodney George “Rod” Laver, the clean court designed “Rod Laver” was originally introduced in 1970 as Laver’s first signature shoe. The slimline, low profile classic tennis silhouette is now re-introduced with a houndstooth textile and leather upper, still retaining its classic look. The second sneaker was first seen in 1987 as Patrick Ewing’s signature shoe, made popular in the 1988 Seoul Olympic Games. Appropriately titled the Conductor, the sneaks are given a felt application for a more refined, innovative look that brings it nicely up to date from its original basketball roots.
