adidas Originals is borrowing the ever-classic “White/Green” color scheme and re-imagining it onto the the adidas Rod Laver. This colorway pops up shortly after the Three Stripes brand’s Ultra Boost was given a “Dash Grey/Core Black” makeover.

If these look familiar, that’s because the 1970’s silhouette has made use of this palette before, but this specific rendition comes built with different upper materials and vintage-esque color-blocking. The first version was formed with a clean white mesh base layer build, but this installment is crafted with smooth leathers which by nature give it a more elevated look and feel. Vibrant green accents distribute to the tongue’s branding as well as on the heels which spell out “rod laver” below its Trefoil insignia.

Sock liners, toe overlays and midsoles are styled with the same off-white finish which channel somewhat of a worn-in, retro aesthetic. Treading — which features swirly indents throughout — is completely flooded with a grass-like hue to match the accents found on up top.

If interested in picking up a pair, you can find them available right now at select retailers like Foot District for €100 (approx. $107 USD).

For more footwear news, the adidas Ultra Boost 4.0 DNA “Watercolor Pack” has emerged.
