On appearance, it is a clear departure from the general practice of the industry, where emphases are placed on logotype and branding.  Instead, the new adidas Tennis Hi Lux Open is a testament to ingenuity and design.

What seems to be random placement are individual stripes of premium leather, arranged into an array, forming the upper of the sneaker.  The stripes also provide ample amount of ventilation plus the trimming of its overall weight.  Another is the unorthodox logotype.  Designers at Adidas managed to reference the brand with 3 stripes without it being explicit.  One would notice the 3 leather stripes with jagged edges, alternating among the leather stripes upper.  A trace back to the original 3 stripes design of adidas.  Another and even more abstract conception is the high top ankle collar, where the 3 segments are in a gradient color palette of beige.  All built on gum rubber sole.  The adidas Tennis Hi Lux Open is currently available at SOUNDS GOOD branches of UNITED ARROWS throughout Japan and its online retail point in ZOZOTOWN.

Strange sneakers. I just can't see anyone wearing those.
