adidas Originals continues to balance the fine line of retro influence with current trends. The Adi-Rise has been released in a number of colorways over the past year or two, and we even saw sneak peek at the Adi-Rise 2.0 a while back. Today however, a new colorway is available that steps out of the safe and traditional colorways we’ve seen so far.

This adidas Originals Adi-Rise Mid is covered in one of the companies most popular recent colorways, Intense Blue. The throwback style is still in place with Trefoil logos, one on the exaggerated tongue and one on the lower heel area. The Adi-Rise gives you some style options with an ankle strap that comes in a snake skin-like finish and wraps around the heel. To give these adidas shoes a bit of character, White accents and Navy Blue around the collar stir up the Intense Blue upper. To finish off the design, a mesh tongue and perforated Three Stripes keep things looking and feeling cool.
