Ronnie Fieg and his store KITH looks to be connecting with adidas Originals for an upcoming collaboration. This time around the two will release one of the newer silhouettes from the brand, the adidas Tubular Doom.
New York City – epitome of the modern metropolis – a harsh urban landscape of steel, glass, and concrete inspired the choice of colors and fabrics for KITH’s Tubular Doom Primeknit.
The overall design reflects all facets of the fast-paced New York lifestyle which becomes even more demanding during the winter months. The shoe’s smart but streamlined design boasts functional Primeknit technology in the form of a wrap-around sock-like upper supported by a woolen cage for added warmth. Paired with the robust marled elastic straps at the quarter panel and forefoot further stabilization and protection against the elements are guaranteed. The grey hues of the Tubular Doom as well as its clean off-white sole, complemented by Kith’s slogan “Just Us” on the heel guard, add to the no-nonsense aesthetic of this first release on the Consortium Tour.
The KITH x adidas Tubular Doom features shades of grey through the Primeknit upper giving them a clean look. Using the traditional extended collar which is suppose to help for a snug fit will also use black across the laces and cage. Other details include KITH’s slogan ‘Just Us’ around the heel while a Tubular midsole and sole dipped in white completes the collaboration.
