Adidas Pro Model Vulc ADV History
In the year 1965, German brand Adidas made their first ever basketball shoe which they called the Pro Model. Crafted with an all-leather upper, many pro hoop players made a switch to enjoy its durable, more stable construction.
Back in those days, crushed toe boxes was a common issue experienced by players with their fave basketball shoes. Adidas, quick to solve the problem, revamped the Pro Model in 1969 by adding a shell toe cap. Now an iconic look, this update did not only enhance its durability, but it also elevated its aesthetics to a whole new level.
Given its success, the brand saw it fit to make a low-cut version. Launched in the same year, the Superstar became one of their most influential and coveted creations. Although not as famed as its successor, the Pro Model has proven that it has made its mark in the sneaker culture. A familiar silhouette released in various colors, materials and shapes, somewhere along the way, this b-ball footwear went through another transformation and turned into a shoe welcomed by skaters.
Tagged as the Adidas Pro Model Vulc ADV, this lifestyle sneaker/skate shoe looks very much like its predecessor but with a few small alterations. Made with a lightweight vulcanized sole and removable, drop-in AdiPRENE insole, expect this footwear to offer targeted impact cushioning without compromising boardfeel.
