"Sobakov takes inspiration from the collective spirit of terrace style. Blending distinctive elements from archive silhouettes with a progressive design language and modern street tooling, the Sobakov model takes inspiration from terrace to create an everyday silhouette inspired by a sport that unites groups around the world. The shoe’s knitted upper is with decorative stitching lines taken from iconic adidas silhouettes.
This is then covered with the classic three stripe mark, wrapping around the heel and then up across the sides. Final touches include a slightly asymmetrical lacing system and branding details, placed atop a gum rubber midsole."
