Good to know

The Adidas Tubular Rise is available in men's sizes. The lace-up closure of these sneakers is a great add-on as it is integrated on the midfoot cage overlay. This offers an interesting look at the sneaker and at the same time, makes the lace-up process a breeze.

Released in Fall/Winter 2017, the Tubular Rise carries its predecessors’ design elements but exemplifies a “postmodernist visual ethos.” This character is represented by its color palette and use of understated accents. Carrying a futuristic design, this mid-top sneaker comes in a Primeknit upper composed of space-dyed fibers making it look dimensional. The suede midfoot cage overlay adds an interesting accent as it holds the two-tone laces together.

Pairing these shoes with a basic shirt and joggers can instantly make one trendy and stylish. The subtle color accents remain to be neutral, making it quite easy to pair it with almost anything.

Much like its Tubular predecessors, the Tubular Rise embodies the boldest iteration of the Tubular philosophy. The use of different materials, a two-tone knit upper, leather vamp and heel, and suede midfoot cage overlay not only contributes to the sleek, minimalist, and futuristic design of the shoe but adds to the durability, support, and comfort of its wearer. More so, its additional feature, the soft EVA outsole with molded stability plugs provides extra cushioning to the sneaker. The overflow panel goes up the heel’s quarter and holds the laces together.
