One of the more anticipated drops of the year here at Uncle Otis always comes from Adidas Spezial. The line revisits old silhouettes and makes them compatible with our modern world. For fall/winter 17 the brand with three stripes gives us the Lacombe, Super Tobacco and TRX. The Lacombe takes its hints from the Newcombe, a famed Adidas tennis shoe of eras past. An all white upper with subtle green and gold foil detailing make this one a must grab. If green is your colour, the Intack should be getting a slot in your rotation. It’s backstory comes from some of the first indoor soccer shoes we saw popping up years ago.
The Super tobacco relies on even more intricate detailing with the three stripes not being visible with out tonal stitching, and embossed logo on the tongue and heel. A brown rubber sole make this one into a piece of tobacco goodness. Finally the TRX is heavily inspired by runners of the 70’s and 80’s. With the upper being comprised of a nylon and suede combination, they promise durability without adding too much chunkiness to the look of the shoe.
