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.
