Chinese New Year is fast approaching and Adidas, particularly Adidas Originals isn't going to waste any time. As early as this week, they are now showcasing what models in their lifestyle line will get the CNY treatment. Two staples, the Superstar and Stan Smith will be back once again and now from the Tubular line, the Radial will have a simple design scheme with minimalist CNY detailing. In general, black color blocking takes most of the upper with heel panels having a "brushed-up suede" effect on it. You can also see a rooster stitched on the lateral aspect in the heel area which is this year's animal in the Chinese Calendar. Also the insole has some mahjong design in it which is another a subtle touch if you ask me. Stay tuned here at Analykix.com, as I will post more pics once I've spotted them in stores.
