adidas has once again dropped another sneaker silhouette we didn’t even know we wanted. But we do. The Prophere is the latest drop from the brand into the highly covetable sneaker market. What I love about the Prophere is the bold sculpted midsole. The textured midsole ensures that this new sneaker impossible to ignore. It’s a bit excessive and I love it. But the over the top continues with the extra bold thick 3-Stripe mark branding on this side. The raw-edge leather heel cage is complemented with a one-piece black, soft knit upper construction all while featuring technical innovations signature to the adidas Originals brand.
The Prophere was designed to challenge the norm. Inspired by uncompromising creators – similar to the artists who performed at the event and the world they occupy – the new silhouette is meant to disrupt the expected. It’s bold. It’s cool. It’s unlike anything else on the market. And that is the point.
“With Prophere we wanted to take a different view of our archive and looked to the unapologetic aesthetic of the 90s, when the brand experimented with bold silhouettes.” said Nic Galway, adidas Originals SVP of Global Design. “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.”
