Berlin’s Solebox are no strangers to the collaboration process, but for this adidas project they’ve taken some hiking influences, and mixed it with this signature favourite for a strong balance of two looks. To capture the offroad feel authentically, the dark sand coloured suede upper is accompanied by a D-ring top eyelet, while the reflective detailing ensures visibility. A sturdier, premium approach is nicely at odds with the featherweight feel of the original Rod Laver, but it gives the silhouette a new dimension. A premium burgundy lining and matching mesh tongue completes the upper, sat atop a white midsole, and coordinating burgundy outsole, finished with a ‘SOLE LOVER’ heel tab, as the grass courts give way to less level terrain.
