Unveiled to the world on December 4th in an event headlined by Fredo and live-streamed between London, Paris and Berlin, the Prophere is a brand new silhouette from adidas Originals – paying homage to the uncompromising fashion of the 90’s. 

While the silhouette includes a fully-knitted one piece upper, don’t be fooled - the shoe is like nothing else on adi’s current roster. The three-stripe lacing system is reminiscent of the ultra boost cage, albeit more in line with the new, beefed-up aesthetic. It’s the sculpted sole that takes centre stage. Bulky, brash, and serrated, the midsole immediately draws the eye, with flashes of red on the outsole and heel completing this future classic.
“We took the provocative and uncompromising thinking of the era and reimagined it for today – a confident approach to branding and unexpected proportions of toolings were the inspiration for Prophere. With this silhouette, we connect the same energy of the nineties with the new generation.” – Nic Galway, adidas Origials SVP of Global Design.
Retro releases from the 90’s have been a major trend this year, but it’s the way the Prophere mixes 90’s influence with modern details that makes this design something to get excited about.
