Adidas Tubular Doom ‘Chinese New Year’ Power Red & Gold Metallic
May 2, 2016
On February 8, the Year of the Monkey commences for the Chinese Lunar calendar, and this year adidas celebrate with a striking Chinese New Year-themed pack. Offering up three Tubular silhouettes, the uppers are decorated in bold red colourways – believed to ward away evil and symbolize luck in Chinese culture.
This innovative model, the Tubular Doom, has been given tonal-red primeknit uppers, sat upon a crisp white Tubular outsole with minimal gold accents on the aglets and eyelets. The sock-like entry along the ankle provides warmth, finished with a robust elastic strap at the quarter panel and forefoot for further stabilization. The heel counter has been embossed with cheeky monkey faces in honor of the Chinese zodiac animal that represents those who have been born in the years 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004 and 2016.
