Starting at the top of the shoe is a woven Trefoil tongue tag placed over a supple cotton foundation, which also appears at the body and toebox. Contrasting the ivory-toned uppers, a green leather patch is placed at the heel counter, complemented by crisp white full-grain leather along the eyelet panels and toecap. Furthermore, “adidas” branding is subtly embroidered at the upper sidewalls, while a sleek two-toned vulcanized midsole completes the shoe’s vintage look.
