The adidas Originals Roundhouse Mid is a shoe that wears many faces. Heritage adidas design cues like the exaggerated tongue and Trefoil branding are reminiscent of the brand’s heyday, while unique webbing details are something you would have seen on some of their older running models. The Roundhouse Mid is clearly a sport-inspired casual effort, but don’t tell that to Ketia Swanier of the Phoenix Mercury – she’s been wearing them on the court throughout the WNBA season. Whatever category the model falls under, it’s been one of adidas Originals’ most impressive offerings over the last year, and the newest colorway may be the best to date.
Black leather, suede and synthetic materials serve as the base of the shoe, while Light Scarlet red accents the look on the side panels, eyestay, collar, ankle, heel and midsole. Ice Grey chimes in on the Trefoil branding, upper lace eyelets and midfoot cross-strap, while a black rubber outsole caps off the look below. Pick up these new adidas shoes over at Eastbay today.
