The Rod Laver has a long history both on and off the court – now, for the first time, adidas' tennis trainer gets a modern Primeknit rebuild. The resulting Rod Laver Primeknit is the lightest iteration of the silhouette to date. The upper features the same clean structure we know from the original, with a little hit of textural contrast provided by a suede toe protector. The thick Rod Laver sole has been affixed to the bottom, complete with siped midsole and two-tone rubber. The initial drop will provide two colourways, a crisp white and a deep navy blue.
The adidas Originals Rod Laver Primeknit is scheduled for a global release on August 5, through select stockists as well as online.
