In its attack on the status quo, adidas’ Prophere pulls no punches. The sneaker ignores the market’s rush to slim down and streamline, opting instead for a silhouette that’s bold and burly. If predecessors adhered to waify beauty standards, the Prophere champions plus-size.
This ‘Black/Solar Red’ is the model's loud and proud OG colourway. Flecks of red peek through darker notes on the uppers, and three fat stripes hark back to models like the O’Reardon. But all in all, it's the maximal midsole and its tactile surface that steals the show.
To board this train before the masses get involved, grab a pair from Foot Locker on February 15.
