Sneaker of the week
We’ve reached the last leg of our tour of the splendid sneakers that have been chosen to create the Spring Break Collection.
The sneaker of the week we’ll be looking at today is the rugged adidas Extaball.
This model is very similar to the previous GLC, thus we’re looking at a shoe suggestive of the world of basketball with a classic design typical of that style. We do, however, find some differences that make this shoe very unique. These are high top sneakers with a leather upper and classic extra-large tongue.
They have a vulcanized outsole and exhibit the oversized adidas name and logo on the ankle.
Aesthetically it’s the perfect compromise between the very sporty GLC and the more sober Honey Sling, a good middle course for those who prefer to avoid extremes.
It’s the only one of the three models where we can admire the three super classic and iconic adidas stripes on the outer side of the upper and also the only shoe that, instead of the pink, sports a warm and aggressive red that creates a strong contrast with the blue and white of the upper and trimmings.
Neon colours are a given in this capsule collection, so even in the Extaball we can see a neon yellow in the shoe interior and over the entire outsole.
Another variation is represented by the white laces in this version, unlike the previous models where hot pink was used in both cases.
Stay tuned. See you next week!
