OVER_OPINIONATED: ADIDAS ROD LAVER
Man oh man this is easily one of my favorite releases this year! I mean it's the always iconic Adidas Rod Laver, this time done in ALL WHITE. I mean it doesn't get any better than that. For the longest time I've thought that the Common Projects Achilles, iconic in it's own right, resembled an Adidas model I just could never pen point which it was. Then I saw the Adidas Rod Laver "Footwear White". The light bulb goes off, oh yeah the Rod Laver. They put a beautiful smooth sole on it to give it a crisp look and gave it some round laces it's almost like having a pair of Common Projects for a fraction of the price, for my bargain fashionistas out there. CP's are often $398.00 or higher. I myself would still go with the CP's, but whether you prefer the Rod Lavers or the Common Projects grab a pair and get fresh for the summer months. And the reasonable US $117.18 price tag before shipping. Shipping is the gut punch but at the same time you have footwear that is not only classic but might not even hit our shores.
