Adidas Tubular Invader Strap Style

The Adidas Tubular Invader Strap displays a perfect fusion of timeless design and stylish modern footwear.  The upper is made of soft suede with embossed snakeskin on the heel and a molded heel strap. These features stand out tremendously. Adidas has successfully created a shoe that has a streamlined design for high-style. Rock these sneakers with jeans or shorts, strolling the streets or simply sitting with friends, or practically do anything with this pair.

Notable Features

The soft suede upper of the Adidas Tubular Invader Strap stands out to most people because it adds lavish charm with gutsy appeal. The striking presence of the wide strap over the lace-up closure gives this shoe a distinct feature compared to other high-top suede sneakers.

The Adidas Tubular Invader Strap is described as the street man’s Adidas Yeezy 750 Boost. Having the same profile as the well-admired Yeezy - suede upper, high-top collar, midfoot strap- at a price point that is very affordable, no one can go wrong with this pair. 

Adidas Tubular Invader Strap History

During the 80s, numerous innovations happened in the world of sneakers.  It was the era when Adidas was able to cross the gap between athletics and fashion shoes through the famous rapper Run DMC who brought the Adidas Superstar to the limelight.

Being one of the leaders in manufacturing products for basketball, Adidas released The Invader basketball sneakers during the 80s. The Invader became an iconic pair and tagged as one of the best sneakers during that time. However, this model failed to keep up with the constantly changing needs of the consumers.

Last July 2016, Adidas released a reworked version of the classic Invader with the help of the Tubular model.  The Invader and the Tubular sneakers were perfectly blended to produce a modern-day lifestyle shoe with a touch of the throwback vibe of the 80s. This fusion is called the Tubular Invader Strap, which greatly resembles the Yeezy Boost 750 of Adidas.
