UPDATE: A fresh batch of images have come through to showcase the tenets of Tubular Doom design. Here, everything on the runner – from its brazenly siped sole, to geometrically designed Primeknit upper – can be seen in fine detail. Get familiar and get going to an adidas retailer because these are available now.
Primeknit provides a unique platform for adidas to push the limits of automated weaving. Take the unique geometric pattern that runs across the striated upper of this Tubular Doom like a crosslink fence. It’s a complex combo, equal parts future-tech and heritage aesthetics – much like the sneaker itself. In this iteration the distinct silhouette is composed of a mix of black undulating laces supports, a heel strap and a sock-like extension, all atop a wildly sculpted Tubular outsole.
The adidas Tubular Doom PK 'Geometric' will drop via select adidas retailers shortly. Stay tuned.
