Adidas Tubular Instinct Low History
Adidas’ archives truly have a lot of hidden gems tucked away in its recesses and Nic Galway, the brand’s VP of Global Design, was ready to dig deep into it to unravel its secrets. The Tubular tech is just one among the many archived ideas of this brand that Nic discovered during his search.
Back in the late 1980’s, Adidas’ creative team thought of creating a basketball trainer with an outsole modeled after car tire tubings. This idea took form in the year 1993, however, due to the lack of needed technology, the design fell short of what they’ve expected it to be. Thankfully, today’s advancements have allowed the brand to put together this groundbreaking piece and perfect it.
This revolutionary tech was introduced in the form of the Tubular Runner. Designed by Nic and his team, it was born in November 2014. Its release roused the excitement of Adidas fans worldwide. The development of a series of lifestyle footwear soon followed. All of which boasted innovation and stylish aesthetics. This includes the Tubular Instinct.
This high-top iteration was released in August 2016. However, this shoe had to take the backseat as it was outshined by the NMD, Ultra Boost and other Tubular models like the Tubular Doom. Despite this, Adidas continued to fine tune this product and revamp it with various materials and colors.
In November 2016, the Tubular Instinct Low was launched. This model was made available in the market on January 2017. Although still lagging in popularity, Adidas remains confident that this product has the potential of becoming a future hit.
