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).
