I want this shoes for already 1 month and got them a few days ago and they are good! THANKS SNEAKERHEAD FOR HOOKING ME UP WITH THESE AWESOME SHOES!!!
Having eyed these sneakers for months now, I finally got the opportunity to cop these, in the Night Cargo colourway for casual wear, and they did not disappoint.
Fresh out of the box, don't let the seemingly bulky look of the shoe fool you. The shoe exudes robustness and comfort. Of course, the more premium Primeknit counterpart will be a lot more breathable, with its one-piece, woven upper; but the regular Tubular X is no slouch. That said, I've only worn these in cold weather so I am yet to see how they fare in warmer climates.
With a more boot-like look and feel, the shoe runs true to size and hugs your foot with little wiggle room. Be mindful however of when you're lacing them up - if you lace up to the last eyelets, the laces will slightly dig in to the ridge of your foot. But if you don't tie your laces too tightly, that is easily remedied.
The soles are thick and solid, providing a stable platform for the wearer. The white portions will of course easily get dirty, given their size and surface area, but that is nothing a clean cannot fix.
The nice feature of the regular Tubular X's over the Primeknit is that the piece at the heel is not only reflective when you shine a light on it, but gives you another contact point to use as a heel tab.
That said, I would gladly recommend the Tubular X's simply because of the more unique silhouette that it has over other sneakers. The fit is bang on, they feel great on-feet and has become an instant favourite of mine in the Adidas Originals line.
