When the Millenium came and went without any of the technological advances Hollywood imagined would be a reality, some were quick to cry, “What gives?” The future, however, works in mysterious ways. Sure, self-lacing sneakers aren’t a thing but, at least, it’s now socially acceptable to wear sneakers to the office outside of casual Fridays. That’s got to be some sort of advancement, right? The rise of sneaker culture has brought more attention to what we put on out feet than ever before. Tried and true brands, like adidas Originals, have elevated themselves to the level of cult classics, whose followers are as devout as they are fashion forward. adidas Originals’ latest iteration of its Tubular collection is rooted in the past with its eyes looking toward the future. Built for urban exploration, the new Viral and Defiant models are fancy without being fussy, comfortable while still street style cool. Some say better days are coming; we say they’re right here, right now. See for yourself in our exclusive lookbook ahead. Welcome to the future.
