Model: Roverend Adventure
Release Date: May 31
Editor's Notes: If there’s ever a time to make a statement, surely, it’s the peak of summer. As we strip back the layers, ditching woolens for lightweight cotton and linen and pants for shorts, many of us pay even more attention to our sneakers (if that’s even possible).
Should you wish to go above and beyond with your summer sneaker rotation, making sure that it’s your footwear that really sets off the ‘fit, a bulky, overengineered, attention-demanding silhouette is a good way to go about it.
Enter the newly-introduced adidas Roverend Adventure.
Sitting somewhere between outdoor adventure silhouette and everyday street staple, the Roverend Adventure is everything but subtle.
Let’s start at the sole unit - this behemoth takes on the appearance of a natural rock face, with multiple visible layers creating a 3D texture from the front to back before diffusing into a ripple effect towards the toe. Bleeding into the sole is a wraparound TPU cage that features cutouts throughout, drawing attention to the skeletal-like mixed fabrication upper residing beneath it.
This detail-heavy silhouette certainly isn’t sleek, but its bulky aesthetic and layered build give it a serious amount of character, worthy of a spot in any seasonal rotation.
For its first appearance on the market, the sneaker comes dressed in a palette that is just as noteworthy as its overall construction. The most detail-heavy portion of the sneaker, the sole, comes coated in a lime green hue that extends to the cage and tongue branding, heavily contrasting the off-white tones of the upper.
