Following in the footsteps of the Tubular and the ZX Flux, the Los Angeles is the latest brand new silhouette to emerge from the adidas Originals design stable. With echoes of the classic LA trainer, the Los Angeles is a fast, modern runner with a stripped back aesthetic. Where Flux wore its archive lineage on its sleeve, the Los Angeles sees the LA Trainer reinvented with broader brush strokes. Leaving behind the LA Trainer’s iconic plugs, the Los Angeles tooling is streamlined with a rippled outsole, and an EVA compound midsole that delivers on comfort. The upper is also informed by a minimalist, light-weight approach, with layered panelling and lining stripped away in favour of a signature flat-lock construction that fits close to the foot.
The upper, which consists of a mesh toe and heel, complimented with a durable ripstop mid-section, gets an all-over urban camo treatment in a subdued color-way of warm grey tones, all tied together with black accents in the Los Angeles’ signature overlock stitch, leather collar and laces. Also in black are the welded matte Three-Stripes on the lateral side, the rear stripe bearing the shoe’s name LOS ANGELES on the right foot, whilst the left foot highlights it’s design partner UNDEFEATED, all set in a military type face that will be familiar to UNDFTD fans. The medial stripes are executed in a contrast golden buff tone matching the tongue label, which bears the trefoil above UNDFTD’s five-strike logo. The quality of this collaboration is further solidified by its German made Continental rubber outsole.
