adidas Pro Conference Hi
ART NUMBER: D65934
MADE ON: 06/13
MADE IN: VIETNAM
Hi tops don’t get much love these days, often ending up on sale racks. Today I’m gonna have a closer look at the adidas Pro Conference Hi, looking very much like original version Pro from 1980’s.
Simple appearance and the simple Black/White colourway make them classy looking (but then again some may say boring). An embossed oversized logo placed on the heel, with a small one on the side panel next to three stripes and another one on the tongue seems a bit too much for one shoe and looks a bit too flashy; but hey this is what kids rocked back in 80’s. What’s more is that there’s a slight yellowing on midsole creating that ‘Vintage look’.
Now let’s have a look at fabrics, as it’s definitely a stronger side of these kicks. The Upper of the shoe is made from quality leather, toe box and side panels are perforated and the lining is made from breathable material what helps to keep them ventilated. Foam-padded insole and EVA foam midsole ensures comfort and stitched rubber cupsole guarantees sustainability so you can be sure these will last for a long time.
Overall it’s a good classic, reminiscent of the old days. So if you’re looking for old school look and quality kicks this is the way to go! (You can find them cheap too).
