Adidas Tubular Invader History

Initially introduced in the late 1980s, this basketball trainer was designed with an outsole modeled after car tire tubings. Technology in those days, however, failed to support the shoe’s aesthetic which was considered way ahead of its time.

It was in November 2014 when Nic Galway and his team launched the Tubular Runner. Built with a look that combined the past with modern-day’s style, it was perceived as state-of-the-art. This time, it left fashion-savvy sneaker enthusiasts craving for more.

This model, which debuted in May of 2016, blended Tubular’s already renowned design with the Adidas Invader’s vintage silhouette. This made non-Adidas fans turn into some of the biggest supporters around solely because of these kicks. As proof of its popularity, various versions have been released. This includes the Tubular Invader Strap and the Invader 2.0.
