Continuing the Vanguard Collection, adidas Originals releases the Rod Laver and Stan Smith inspired by academy scholars. Those two models are known as the adidas Stan Smith ‘Wunderkind’ and adidas Rod Laver ‘The Scholar’.
The Rod Laver features a multi-tonal, navy nubuck background and miniature bees in embroidered gold shining boldly against the opaque laterals. Red striped foxing runs the length of the tongue echoing private school uniform that pops against the darker, midnight blue tongue. The two metallic crest pins signify merits in “Punctuality” and “Perfect Attendance,” citations in scholastic achievement.
The Stan Smith is reimagined with a camel-tan colored wool texture upper, juxtaposed by the black leather on which the Stan Smith logo is embroidered. Subtle, elegant touches such as the flat brass eyelets add opulent details to this refined version of a classic adidas sneaker.
The adidas Originals Rod Laver and Stan Smith will be available on 10/20 exclusively at ExtraButterNY.com during a release event at 7p.m. EST and release widely at ExtraButterNY.com on Wednesday, 10/21 at 12p.m. EST. Both will retail for $100.
