For those who weren’t able to get a pair of adidas Yeezy 350s, adidas put out a similar looking budget model in the adidas Tubular Shadow Knit for a very affordable $100. It’s a pretty decent looking shoe if you ask me, and hype aside I didn’t really think it deserved the hate it received from a lot of people.
Enter the adidas Tubular Doom SOC Primeknit. If you thought the Tubular Shadow looked like the Yeezy 350, the Tubular Doom SOC Primeknit takes it to the next level. Primeknit? Check. Ridges on the midsole? Check. Extra pull tab on the heel? Check. The Tubular Doom SOC Primeknit does an even better job replicating the Yeezy 350 than the Tubular Shadow in my honest opinion.
For those who were unable to get a pair of Yeezy 350s at retail or refuse to pay over retail on the resell market, I have a feeling the Tubular Doom SOC Primeknit will fill in just fine. It doesn’t have Boost though, which I’m sure will detract the #boostislife crowd.
