Brand: adidas

Model: Sobakov

Key Features: A knitted upper is fixed atop a geometric gum tooling system. Leather accents are incorporated on the heel tab and tongue.

Release Date: Available now

Price: $120

Buy: adidas, Farfetch, and other select retailers.

Editor’s Notes: Released shortly after the FIFA 2018 World Cup in Russia, adidas' latest soccer-inspired silhouette, the Sobakov, is now available in black and white colorways.

The sneaker's imposing midsole immediately brings to mind the KAMANDA, another of the brand's newer releases, which was notably reworked by C.P. Company back in February. The wrap-around Three Stripes branding, meanwhile, is reminiscent of the beloved Predator Precision football cleat, which enjoyed a successful re-release last summer.
