Although some may not immediately create the strongest association between pumpkins and America, when the Fall months roll around there is no doubt it is a mainstay in America culture as we see carved pumpkins litter the streets and make their way to the table at the end of a turkey dinner in the form of a pie. This part of the adidas Flavors of the World Tour definitely yields some of the boldest sneakers.
The first up to bat is the aptly chosen, Americana. The Americana features a dark leather upper with an interesting texturized front toe bumper that is meant to resemble the ridges of a pumpkin. The back heel features pumpkin embroidery, while the collar is clad in orange, black and yellow plaid. Tri-colored laces in the aforementioned plaid color scheme and a ghoulish jack o’ lantern inspired lace lock round off the package.
Next up is the Rod Laver Vintage model. No doubt the plaid effect dominates he entire shoe, but little details should not go undetected such as the carefully placed jack o’ lantern emblem on the back midsole and the brightly colored orange squiggly lined sole.
Look for these to release in October to coincide with Halloween.
