adidas Originals Rod Laver Vintage – size? exclusive
Released in its original form for the first time in a good few years, the adidas Originals Rod Laver is a shoe that needs very little introduction! First seen on the feet of Australian tennis star Rodney George Laver in 1970, the Laver, like the Stan Smith (1964), conformed to the then very strict rules in tennis by removing the 3-Stripe branding from the upper resulting in a super clean lightweight silhouette that in time would become a huge hit off the court.
Featuring a breathable mesh upper and a one-piece leather toe-box and tongue, the Laver also benefited from a herringbone outsole, which would prove key and help Laver win countless Grand Slam titles and on court records, some of which still stand to this day.
The adidas Originals Rod Laver Vintage releases as a size? worldwide exclusive as part of our Adi’s Archive spring 2012 collection and is available from size? stores and online today (6th January).
