Many of our readers may be quick to call this new winterized version of the adidas Originals Hardland a little to close to the string of “wheat” releases from another footwear giant, but the difference is in the details. This model works in the organic tan look on the upper through a premium nubuck, which is embossed with some subtle patterning on the tongue and towards the back end of the sneaker. The rounded black and yellow boot-laces are there, driving home the workwear look on this winterized offering from adidas Originals. Get the detailed pictures after the jump of the adidas Originals Hardland WNTR and be on the lookout for them now at your local adidas stockist.

When the adidas Originals Hardland released late last year, we made the obvious connection between the model’s vulcanized sole and the love/hate relationship they share with skatebaorders. You (occasionally) land hard in vulc soles, and this latest release might even be good for the occasional trek across ‘hard’ lands. The latest Hardland release won’t be your best bet for hiking this summer due to its largely white construction, though its hiking boot-style D-ring eyelets offer a rugged edge. Perhaps they’re fit for use in the urban jungle (and they certainly remind us of Nike Sport Culture’s similarly-colored pack by that same name from ’08).
