adidas Originals Consortium Rod Laver Vin

by Inside The Sneakerbox Inc May 05, 2015

Based on the 1970s Tournament Edition, the Rod Laver VIN receives a luxurious update for spring 2015. The shoe clearly embodies a rigorous attitude in regards to the design principle of “less is more”. While the original model had already been stripped of all branding–except for the Rod Laver name tag at the heel–this latest version goes even further as there is no logo to be found anywhere on the upper.

 

As a result the material treatment receives all of the well-deserved attention. In this case it is an almost lifelike crocodile-skin embossing on the side panels. The masterful execution in black or white premium leather as well as the balance between plain and patterned elements make up for the appeal of this new design. Apart from the upper, the shoes also feature full leather lining and a leather insole that due to its natural moisture-wicking capabilities enhances wear comfort. Slim cotton laces–black on black and cream on white–round off the reserved yet intricate overall design of the Rod Laver VIN which fuses aesthetics of formal footwear with the characteristics of a sneaker.

 

The adidas Originals Consortium Rod Laver VIN will be available via our online store May 9th.
