Tennis great Rodney Laver has left his mark in tennis history and in the evolution of footwear. Teaming up with adidas on the Rod Laver, they created an iconic shoe that would inspire many brands to recreate their own version. However, today we aren’t talking about a new shoe, we are talking about a reinvented one.

Forty-six years after first debuting, the Rod Laver has been recreated many times since, this time, it is now found in a clean Primeknit. This iconic model comes in Primeknit shortly after its twin model, the Stan Smith, did so. Featured in navy and white, the Rod Laver will bring comfort with a lightweight woven upper, and style with its clean look.

Release comes soon, on August 5th, to select adidas retailers. Is this a must have for your rotation? Let us know @ModernNotoriety and stay tuned for more adidas release info.
