Continuing the Mutombo roll-out through 2014, adidas delivers this all new ‘Black Patent’ colourway. As the title suggests, the usual tribal traits are played down in this formal number, leaving the material make-up to shine. Bedded atop a cream white outsole, lengths of black patent leather wrap the upper, complementing the ghost grey embellishments, such as the heel panelling, collar insignia and the iconic Mutombo logo found in the tongue. Good for the streets, better for the suited sneakerhead, look to fit it with any of your own ensembles now via Caliroots.
adidas Originals presents a new colorway of the ZX 5000 RSPN from its spring/summer 2014 collection. Updates to the silhouette include a leather tag where the cage used to be, an added inner sock for added comfort and a new rugged outsole. Finishing touches include floating three stripes and a soft suede patch at the toe. Look for this and other select colorways of the silhouette now at select adidas Originals stockists now.
Y’all already know that we’re all about the adidas Integral S, we loved having our way with it. Now adidas Originals keep a good thing going by bringing two new colourways to the market. Dropping in green/orange and blue/pink editions both are a suede and tight mesh scenarios with the ever so fresh Torsion bar support and Soft Cell cushioning in the soles. You can score both releases now from Aphrodite 1994, stay tuned for wider distro details.
Oh yeah, the battle of the boots is on and the gloves are off y’all! We’re not going to get involved in adi and Nike’s knitting battle or take a side, we have no idea who hoisted the sail on the weaving adventure first, but we can tell you that we are big believers in communal thinking – coincidences happen every day and that’s no coincidence. Moving on from the philosophical side of the situation, what we are dealing with here is a full blown soccer sock boot. One question though adidas, is it possible to slip shin guards down the front of these bad boys? Stay tuned for any kind of release info and news pertaining to the adidas Primeknit FS as it comes in.
Linking up in the sneaker surf to ride some waves with the Stan Smith resurrection, adidas Originals have suited up their Rod Laver court classic for a 2014 retro. Seen here in two options, both white sneaks come hewn from leather and mesh with olive or maroon leather heel caps and bumper plates. Peep your local adidas Originals retailer from April 1st to get amongst the action.

adidas and Nike have long been the two heavyweights atop the sporting world. After a frantic few days, today has proven to be a pivotal point in highlighting the future of football boots among the two. Following-up on the announcing of its Samba Primeknit, adidas pull out yet another marquee model, the high-top adidas Primeknit FS. The full-length sock is knit into the boot’s upper with Primeknit in hopes of offering a sock-like feel. The conceptual model is currently in development with hopes of reaching the world’s biggest stages later this year. The boot’s upper will not only provide support and flexibility where needed but also have a water-resistant coating to ensure optimum performance in the rain. As we near the final few months of World Cup 2014, fans and viewers alike should ready themselves for some exciting developments in the pipeline.
This year we can expect to see more and more World Cup themed sneaker releases, there’s no doubt about it. In fact we are surprised we haven’t seen a million and one already. Adidas Skateboarding are on the ball though, and have flipped up a few of their pro models into colourways of their football boot range to create the ‘Futebol’ pack. Here we peep French team rider Lucas Puig’s Lucas Pro painted up in the same solar blue as the adidas Football F50 silhouette. Check your local adidas Skateboarding stockist as these street slayers are arriving at retailers right about now.
We recently snuck a few words quick with Lucas over the internets to talk about the release… and other things.
Hey Lucas, how are you? What have you been doing for the past 24 hours?
I’m fine thank you. I’m in Paris trying to film for the adidas jersey campaign.
How is the skate scene in Toulouse France right now? You seem to have a pretty tight crew there.
I’ve been traveling a lot the past few months so I haven’t had much time to spend with the crew.
Before you had your own pro model with adidas, what kind of shoes were you skating in?
I was skating the adidas model called Skate and the Buzenitz for sure!
We read in an interview with you on the adidas Skateboarding website that you go through a pair of shoes in 10 days when you are skating a lot. That’s bonkers! Do you have a graveyard of beaters in your house or do you just throw them away? I wish I could keep all of them but I’m a stinky Frenchy
Your pro model has the same tech tooling as in Lionel Messi so it fits perfectly into the FUTEBOL PACK. Can you tell us a little about the shoe? The Colours? The performance?
The shoe is technical, we tried to do a very light shoe with not much material. I don’t really care about the colour, as long as they aren’t pink.
Are you a football fan Lucas? Do you attend any games with friends or watch it on TV?
Yes, but i’m still waiting for the 1998 French team to come back (with Zidane). I sometimes go to see my hometown team with my homes.
Who are your favourite guys to travel and skate with on the adidas Skateboarding team?
Chewy Cannon aka Ogbobbyjohnson.
Aside from skate models what are your favourite adidas models?
How about this. What is the best pair of shoes to wear if you were attempting a switch hardflip feeble grind down a 46 stair handrail?
Flip flops or sandals
OK, we love jokes in the Sneaker Freaker office, can you share one with us?
Q. How do you call an intelligent man in the USA ?
A. A tourist
Hey so, down under here in Australia we call fried potatoes ‘hot chips’, but in America they call them ‘french fries’… Are they really French? In fact there are from Belgium.
If you dare, please tell us one weird thing about yourself that nobody knows. I used to dance alone every morning, in front of my mirror
Finally what are your plans this year? Will you attend the World Cup?
I will try to film as much as i can for the new adidas video and Cliché. I am also looking forward to seeing this World Cup!
Fresh off of its luxurious “White Snake” release, the adidas Tech Super is gearing up for another retail run. For this latest sprint, the previously mentioned model looks to be kicking it old school with this upcoming vintage-like offering. Flush with a clean suede and mesh upper, the fresh running white, tribe purple, and aluminum color palette will be a dope complement to the upcoming Spring season. Already in stock at a few Euro retailers, a release here in the states is surely not too far behind.

A sign that Spring is almost here – the latest from adidas Originals, the adidas Stan Smith Suede Mint. Stepping away from the usual leather used on the Stan Smith sneakers, adidas decided to mix things up by dropping a Suede Pack. So far, it has been revealed that this Mint colored suede upper piece with White leather on the heel tab and Off-White sole will be part of the pack.
It is unknown when exactly these will drop, but we know these will release sometime this Spring. Keep checking back with Sneakerfiles for the exact release date.
