Much has been made of this year marking the 20th anniversary of the Barcelona Olympics and its unforgettably dominant Dream Team, with slightly less attention being paid to earlier events including the 1972 Munich Games.  But did you know that along with models like the SL 72 and Munchen, adidas also debuted the Trefoil logo we’ve come to know and love almost exactly forty years ago?  It’s with this birthday in mind that adidas Originals’ Japanese contingent has come through with a quartet of new releases, two each of the adidas Originals Rod Laver Vin and Superstar 80s LTHR, each group of which reflects its design’s heritage while pushing forward toward today’s trends.  Check out all four in additional images below and we’ll update you should these hit the States.  Photos: Hayabusa

What started as a single espadrille-style Rod Laver from United Arrows last week has blossomed into a full-on pack that continues the ‘B.B.U’ partnership struck between Beauty & Youth, Bedwin (& the Heartbreakers) and UNDFTD last year.  Joining that trio is Japan’s mita sneakers who’ve patterned their adidas Originals Rod Laver Vin after the legendary Samba indoor soccer shoe.  These strongly resemble the OG Samba, from their black suede uppers to the extended tongue and gum sole, but these keep with the ultra-clean Rod Laver style, simply implying Three Stripes with six perf columns on the side panels.  Check these out up close after the jump and let us know if they’re worth importing when the ‘B.B.U’ Rod Laver Vins arrive at select retailers on Saturday, April 28th.  Photos: EyesCream

Remember that espadrille-soled Rod Laver we showed you last week?  Looks like that’s not the only collaboration United Arrows has coming up with the Brand With the Three Stripes, this latest collection bringing together their Beauty & Youth label with one more Japanese fashion concern and a US-based company that straddles the Pacific.  The adidas Originals Rod Laver Vin will soon drop in four new colorways that continue the Beauty & Youth x Bedwin x UNDFTD ‘B.B.U’ partnership, including April’s aforementioned rope-soled United Arrows edition, May’s Samba-inspired drop and two mesh designs for June.  Check out more images below and stick with Sneaker News for word on US availability.  via FNG

The adidas Originals Rod Laver Vintage has come to us in a variety of packages over the past few years, but only the Lux models can boast from their perch on the top shelf.  The latest pack applies a couple of interesting twists to this familiar silhouette, namely the upper’s microperforations and its eyestays’ contrast piping.  The former is one of those things you can only appreciate when you get a good look from up close, but the latter serves to enhance this design’s throwback appeal without straying too far from the original blueprint.  Black and grey pairs both get white stripes to match their laces and soles, while a white pair goes with the OG green contrasts and all three are depicted in greater detail below.  Photos: ameblo

United Arrows x adidas Originals Rod Laver

There’s been much discussion on the steadily shrinking list of yet-to-be-Retroed OG Air Jordan colorways as we approach the ‘Obsidian’ XII’s first release in fifteen years, and while they’re not targeted at the same portion of the market, here’s a lifestyle design that also makes you wonder what’s left in sneaker designers’ collective tanks.  In a world where new hybrid designs pop up with each passing day, it’s somewhat shocking that only Vans has gotten close to the maximum potential out of the classic European rope-soled style.  But as we move through traditional styles like boat shoes, duck boots and wingtips, we’re bound to see more models like this United Arrows x adidas Originals Rod Laver.  This model simply applies a veggie fiber weave to its timeless shape, and in remaking itself suggests that almost every mid-’80s-and-earlier model we’ve come to know and love could excel with this same style.  Let us know how this Rod Laver espadrille turned out, which other models you might like to see with its distinctive sole style and stick with Sneaker News for updates on the May 2012 release.

adidas Originals Rod Laver Vintage Lux – UK Exclusives

The beloved Rod Laver lowtop recently joined the adidas Skateboarding lineup, but that doesn’t mean the Originals division is going to stop cranking out new colorways from this time tested tennis pro.  The adidas Originals Rod Laver Vintage Lux brings three new pairs together with the same basic construction: premium canvas uppers accented by tonal brushed suede toes, tongues and heel tabs, all riding a white sole and with a golden top eyelet thrown in for good measure.  This formula works perfectly on black and navy pairs that add white contrast stitching, though the look of a brown design with a more muted approach to its lines suggests they could have done just as well with tonal embroidery.  Click through to see all three pairs up close and look for these exclusively at UK retailers like Size? next month.
