Even with adidas Originals setting the pace in several lifestyle categories and duckboots enjoying their most popular stretch in decades, Three Stripes has managed to steer almost entirely clear of the time-tested rain-ready look. The obscure Tsumo Pu heel-zip popped up to fill the void just before the turn of the year, but its name was apparently lost in translation as was their connection to the adidas archives. But adi-devotees will no doubt recognize the dimpled sole from the cult classic Trimm Trab soccer shoe, here utilized as part of the adidas Originals DMD Trabb hightop. This model’s suede mudguard lets you know right off the bat this is a style over function choice, a role in which they truly excel. The mix of brown tones with a white sole and just a hint of navy reversing a luxurious style offered by all the major brands in early 2012, so click through to see the pattern hidden by this pair’s zipper and grab yours from Caliroots.
