With the range of much admired, iconic heritage models available from the adidas catalog, it would be easy for the Trefoil taskmasters to get caught looking backwards and forget about the vision that made the company so great to begin with. Thankfully this isn’t the case as we continue to see a stream of innovative ideas and new silhouettes every season from the creative heads at adidas.
Case in point is the adidas Highrise, a bold, inspired hi-top that is guaranteed to turn heads next year with its effortless street stylings and range of great color make ups. The full grain, premium leather upper is neatly contrasted with a snake emboss on the ankle collar and around the toe-box and eye-stays while the forefoot and heel straps carry through the urban feel of the model. With the 3-Stripes perforated and subtle branding aside from the over-sized Trefoil on the tongue, the adidas Highrise is destined to become another understated classic. It looks to drop in January 2010, at all adidas Originals stores and select retailers. For those of you lucky enough to be in The UK, France, Germany or The Netherlands, the kicks are now available at Shop.adidas.com.
