Adidas really has a leg up on the competition with their latest round of sneakers and one advance in particular has set the stage for them to win. Primeknit seems to be in the perfect position to help their quest for market share and keep us cool in the process.

This woven innovation was most recently spotted serving as the upper on the Adidas Originals Tubular Runner and it's doing double duty with a snakeskin print. This perks up the streamlined silhouette and even further blurs the line between form and function for a very intriguing visual effect. This particular style is available in blue and beige but the colors really feel secondary to the material that carries them.

The Adidas Originals Tubular Runner is set to release on June 19 at select retailers including the Chimp Store. Don't miss out!
