If you aren’t familiar with Adidas at the deep cuts level, you might not know that their footwear repertoire includes the combat boots worn by Germany’s elite anti-terrorist unit, the GSG9, which when it comes to performance footwear, is a pretty sizable feather in any brand’s cap.
So, even though the Tubular Doom Primeknit ‘Special Forces’ may not be meant for actual, bullets flying combat, Adidas has a background in the subject that is much more substantial than attaching a catchy, aggressive name to a release.
The Tubular Doom ‘Special Forces’ features a desert theatre colorway, with the primeknit upper augmented by functional details like mesh webbing style heel, a ripstop lacing structure, and a canvas strap across the top of the foot. A subtle, identifying serial number on the shoe’s heel rounds out the militaristic aesthetic.
