The adidas Rivalry TR is a retro silhouette, reminiscent of 80s shin-guarding high-tops. This new colourway mutes the palette for dark days and bad weather. The black suede, leather and canvas upper has been treated with DWR for water resistance. Perhaps more a stylistic addition than a functional one, some reflective elements have been added to the heel panel too. Full gum rubber soles are never not good, but the star of this shoe is the toebox shape. Razor sharp!
The Rivalry TR is out now directly from adidas – and it looks like they’ve got a promotion on at time of writing!
