adidas has got you covered when it comes to reining in the new year by giving everyone else a serious case of shoe envy with the latest iteration of the progressive Tubular model. The Tubular, as you can see, doesn’t seem as tubed shaped as its name would suggest, but the Y-3 collection (especially the Y-3 Qasa High) and the ZX 7000 model were influential in their design. This pair, with a core black/clear white/matte copper colourway, comes encased in a neoprene upper and leather detailing, as well as the defining ‘New Year’s Eve’ attribute — metallic gold accents. The EVA outsole adds not only supreme comfort but also a strip of white that ties in the colour scheme for an uber luxe aesthetic. If the all white normcore look trending in the sneaker scene is turning you off, the black and gold opulence of this pair might just elevate you from mere fuccboi to street icon.
The adidas Originals Tubular ‘New Year’s Eve’ Pack, priced at EUR119.90, has a Tuesday 16 December ’14 release date but you can pre-order them here.
