Spotted at the recent Bread & Butter trade show in Berlin was this adidas Originals Grand Prix.
Originally debuting in 1970, the low-profile sneaker was popular among tennis pros, who favored the shoe for its comfortable leather upper, soft textile lining and molded rubber midsole.
This upcoming style features a classic white-based colorway with royal blue accents and suede toe. The shoe is given a vintage treatment with prominent yellowing at the midsole. Look for the Grand Prix to release as part of adidas Originals’ Fall/Winter 2012 collection.
