The Tubular Nova is unique. The silhouette is uncompromising – a sock-like Primeknit upper juts out of a thick piped sole like a dorsal fin through a swim-tube. Throw in jagged Three Stripe support panels and you get an atypical adidas. The latest iteration sees ‘Chili’ hues hit the black woven upper in a pattern comparable to a tropical heat map. Finished with scorching habanero heel straps and lacing system, the Tubular Nova will appeal to those who like a little spice.
