At once retro and futuristic, Tubular shoes reflect the innovative spirit of originals everywhere. Since its 2014 revival – helmed by Nic Galway, VP of Global Design for adidas Originals – the sneaker has seen many silhouettes, with the adidas Tubular Doom, the adidas Tubular Nova PK and the adidas Tubular Radial coming in as some of the top styles. Modern iterations mix comfort-enhancing technology with original design details, giving the shoes a look that’s at once casual and style conscious. The Tubular Doom, Tubular Nova PK and Tubular Radial shoes mix materials for a fresh look and signature sock-like fit.
ADIDAS ARCHIVE: TUBULAR
Originally designed by Yohji Yamamoto of Y-3 Qasa fame, the Tubular is a study in simplicity, making use of the designer’s avant-garde style and streamlined design aesthetic. In the years since its original 1994 release, the adidas Tubular has remained true to its clean lines and distinct outsized outsole, making updates as sneaker technology evolves.
