In a contemporary sneaker landscape that’s seen just about every sneaker brand incorporate at least some of the traditional duckboot styling into its rotation of classics, adidas has been conspicuously absent. The Brand with the Three Stripes has co-opted design cues from a whole bunch of other different types of boots in recent years, so this latest release seems long overdue, if not at all unpredictable. The adidas Originals Tsumo Pu pairs a sleek waxex canas upper with what look like they should be waterproof mudguards, which, upon further inspection, reveal themselves to be crafted in a black suede you most certainly do not want getting wet. A nice juxtaposition of materials that’ll make an observant sneakerhead grin, these should be out soon in the States with sizes now shipping from Japan’s ZOZO.
