The adidas Tubular Invader Strap Is the Poor Man’s Yeezy
With the futility of trying to cop a pair of Yeezy Boosts now firmly established as a time-honored tradition over the past few releases, adidas is rolling out a consolation prize in the form of its little-known Tubular Invader. Reinvented in this Strap variation, the sneaker heavily borrows from the Yeezy Boost 750, boasting a familiar hairy suede high-top upper in suede as well as a prominent forefoot strap belted over the tonal laces and subtly perforated toe box. Even the vertical indents in the red heel portion of the sole hints at the ridged Yeezy sole. Providing Yeezy fans with another similar alternative as well as elevating the profile of the Tubular Invader, it’s a win-win situation for the Three Stripes.
