History of the Adidas Tubular Doom Primeknit

Adidas continues to be a more progressive sneaker brand than it was before by challenging itself in producing fresh and exciting designs. In 2016 alone, it seems like Adidas opened a floodgate with the number of colorways and fashion-forward styles dropping under the Adidas Tubular Doom category.

The sole of the Adidas Tubular Doom Primeknit points to the 1980s basketball shoe called the Tubular. This hoops shoe was way too much ahead of its time that it did not prosper in the mainstream. However, Adidas’ veteran designer Nic Galway, the primary mover behind the extremely popular Yeezy Boost, perceived the potential of the Tubular.
