New colors of Tubular Dawn W

New colors of Tubular Dawn WToday we've got for you another model from the adidas Originals family. Going through my previous posts, we can easily see which brand is leading when it comes to retro sneakers. Adidas easily dominated all competition with a sheer number of releases this autumn.

The ladies sneaker adidas Tubular W is a model that underwent constant changes over the years. It went a long way from the time of their release in 1993. This futuristic running shoe quite quickly has become a highly popular model among sneakerheads, despite their relatively young age for a retro shoe.

The release of this model brought a revolution in the running shoe market dominated at that time by the classic constructions. It wasn't only because of their look but also in a large part due to the new outsole with a cushioning system introduced with this model. The outsole was inspired by the car tires and just like them you could inflate and deflate them to achieve the amount of cushioning you were comfortable with. There came a small pump with the shoes that let you do that. As you can imagine this solution didn't pass the test of time and was rather quickly changed. The inflatable outsole was replaced with one made entirely of foam in a tubular shape, hence the name. That is the shape we can see today in each and every Tubular model. The line of the upper looks always aggressive and futuristic, which up to this day distinguishes it from other constructions, even the much younger ones. But I have to say, I'd love to see the original shoe with the pump.

The metallic threads interwoven in the upper and reflective print made of silicone create a unique look. Another thing worth mentioning is a very interesting and a modern lacing system which uses the end of stripes on the sides of the upper as hooks holding the laces. Elastane material used as a lining for this model provides ventilation. In the midsole we can find an EVA foam that's responsible for cushioning, offering high comfort during use.

You can find this ageless design, among many other great shoes, in our offer.
