Just about a month ago, Sneaker News notified you that adidas Originals had linked up with Japanese fashion label Beauty & Youth to reissue the original Rod Laver colorway.  Luckily for US Three Stripes collectors, this one has made its way across the Pacific to select stateside retailers, which means you can get your hands on this classic white/green adidas Originals Rod Laver with an upgraded cork footbed.  Hopefully that means United Arrows’ ZX 500 OGs are also headed this way, but for now let’s focus on the opportunity at hand with more photos after the jump and availability beginning Tuesday, April 30th.

adidas Originals Rod Laver for Beauty & Youth

When last we saw the Rod Laver opt for a cork footbed, it was in collaboration with Beauty & Youth.  The United Arrows imprint is once again involved with a premium rendition of this classic tennis lowtop, this time resurrecting the elegant OG colorway.  The adidas Originals Rod Laver for Beauty & Youth gives you the classic white and green pairing, and while there’s not a hint of co-branding on this low-key handshake deal, that cork insole is proof positive that this edition is distinct from its predecessors, however apparently identical.  Have a closer look after the jump and hit your overseas connects because these are arriving at select Japanese retailers right now.

adidas Originals Rod Laver “Snakeskin”

Another of adidas Originals’ heritage models joins the Year of the Snake party, but whereas other models present the question of whether to scale the Stripes/branding or the base layer, this pair skips that decision entirely.  The adidas Originals Rod Laver doesn’t have stripes anyway, this classic vulc-soled edition opting instead for snake treatment on the forefoot and heel badge.  It’s one of the more unusual ways we’ve seen a sneaker brand add serpentine vibes to an established silhouette, but with Chinese New Year still well over a month away, you’ll want to stick with Sneaker News to see if this changes.

TheSoloist x adidas Originals Collection

Takahiro Miyashita‘s Number (N)ine fell silent around the turn of the decade but the designer wasn’t just feeling the crunch of a financial meltdown that’d caused the struggles of so many fashion companies.  To the contrary, Miyashita was readying a new label after a dozen years on the earlier project, and a couple of years after the Number (N)ine x Converse Odessa collaboration closed out that brand, this new Three Stripes teamup adds attention to his new project.  TheSoloist x adidas Originals capsule brings us four steely bluish-lavender suede drops in familiar styles including the Rod Laver (original and Vintage versions), Basket Profi and Norton, and we’ve got photos of the entire set after the jump below.  Stick with Sneaker News to find out when they arrive at retailers and let us know which of these classic looks turned out best.

adidas Originals Rod Laver – Black – Gum

adidas originals rod laver black gum adidas Originals Rod Laver   Black   Gum

The adidas Rod Laver is one of many classic tennis models in the Three Stripes heritage archives, but its distinct toebox, midsole and complete lack of side panel stripes makes it one of the easier ones to spot from a distance.  But even with that unique signature, you might make a double-take when looking at this new pair that not only comes in a novel material combo, but also a colorway that’s far from the iconic green-on-white OGs.  This new Rod Laver lowtop opts instead of sticking with that time-tested formula, to go with a trendier tonal blend of black nubuck and ripstop, as well as the gum brown outsole that’s been so popular over the past few years.  Click through for more images, let us know how these compare to other black Rod Lavers (like the ‘B.B.U.’ Vin drops) and grab yours at select adidas Originals retailers like Oneness.

United Arrows x adidas Originals Rod Laver Vin

The Rod Laver Vintage silhouette has been a popular one for adidas divisions ranging from the Originals classics lineup to the Three Stripes skate team.  This latest drop comes in collaboration with one of Japan’s leading clothing retailers in continuation of the ‘B.B.U’ partnership to which their Beauty & Youth label is the first abbreviated.  These United Arrows x adidas Originals Rod Lavers are tangentially connected to the other 3 BBU Rod Laver Vins coming up soon, but the use of a woven espadrille-like sole has these standing out against both that set and the majority of white summer sneakers we’ve seen thus far.  Click through for a closer look, then grab yours from select Three Stripes stockists like SNS.

adidas Skateboarding isn’t restructuring or collaborating with Levi’s; they didn’t create a 4/20 sneaker and haven’t dropped any frustratingly-limited releases.  What the Three Stripes skate divison does have, however, is a seemingly neverending supply of classic lowtop designs to which simple colorways can be applied beautifully and in large numbers.  Their latest round of releases includes drops ranging from Lucas Puig’s white adidas Skate Rod Laver Vin to Dennis Busenitz’ grey/green Samba-inspired sigs, along with standby models like the adi Ease and Campus Vulc.  Check out the entire collection below and grab yours from select retailers like DQM.
