It’s an interesting time for adidas Originals. From Kanye West’s adidas Yeezy line to new silhouettes like the adidas Nite Jogger, the Trefoil Brand’s lifestyle division’s got a plethora of distinctive chips on the table and now they’re introducing another eye-catching design into the fold: the adidas LX Con. First spotted on actor, director, and street style savant Jonah Hill‘s feet at last year’s Hypefest, the LX Con (also called the Lexicon) aims for a fashion angle that’s decidedly more Y-3 than Ultra Boost. The new silhouette features a lightweight mesh upper with delicately stitched cloth stripes and a technical lacing system — one that calls upon plastic tubes running from the toebox to the heel and around the throat. A chunky adiPRENE midsole with a high-cut piece on the lateral foxing then rounds off the hybrid look. So far, the LX Con has appeared in both a timeless black/white/gum, a ’90s-esque sand/purple/teal/red, and a sporty white/blue grey, both likely set to drop during the first quarter of 2019 leading in the Summer months. Get a close-up look at both shoes here, and keep it locked to our Sneaker Release Dates page for further release updates as they’re available.
