Available Now // adidas Prophere “Acid Wash”
The adidas Prophere has had a rocky start to its life. Along with the Deerupt, it was supposed to be the next big thing, but they both hit the market like a brick — which is fitting because these things weigh almost the same as one. adidas were left wondering what to do with their silhouette, as it was set for an uncertain future. Its inclusion in the DragonBall Z collaboration helped its cause, but its future was still in question. And now, after a strangely long hiatus, the Prophere returns — and I’ve gotta say, along with a lot of moves by adidas in 2019 — I’m impressed. This “Acid Wash” adidas Prophere comes sporting an attractive Fall palate of Black and Orange, made up in premium canvas and buttery-soft leathers. The hero of the pair is obviously the bleached canvas uppers that are reminiscent of 80s denim, which come detailed with lineal etchings on both the medial side and heels, with the latter overlaid by supple black leather. That same leather engulfs the tongue, with the color carrying over to the liners and heavily-textured midsoles. Wrapping up the design are the vibrant pops of Solar Red at the outsole and tongue branding hits.
