Editor’s Notes: adidas Originals is set to launch an all-new silhouette with the Prophere this month. Inspired by the unapologetic aesthetic of the ’90s, the sneaker is both disruptive in design and innovative in construction.
From a design standpoint, the Prophere boasts a one-piece knit upper, paired with a leather heel cage and three stripe lacing system.
“With Prophere we wanted to take a different view of our archive and looked to the unapologetic aesthetic of the 90s, when the brand experimented with bold silhouettes,” says Nic Galway, adidas Originals SVP of Global Design. “We took the provocative and uncompromising thinking of the era and reimagined it for today – a confident approach to branding and unexpected proportions of toolings were the inspiration for Prophere. With this silhouette, we connect the same energy of the nineties with the new generation.”
adidas’s all-new Prophere is set to launch December 15 at select retailers and online.
For more Three Stripes heat, adidas Y-3 has dropped two new silhouettes, and here’s how you can buy them.
