I’ve always been curious about the adidas Prophere ever since it was teased by adidas on their Instagram account. However I couldn’t bring myself to buy it because the “tito” in me couldn’t think of a way to rock that super thick white spiky midsole. I mean seriously, how do you dress that one up if you’re a telco executive in your mid 30’s, hehe.
However that all changed when I saw the Prophere collab between Undefeated (a US based streetwear and sneaker store) and adidas. I was floored with the full black spiky midsole and the dark green colorway. It looked like a stylish futuristic military boot from Final Fantasy! I knew that I needed to cop one even at resale because the prices would be more practical since they’re not “Yeezys”.
Unfortunately I wasn’t able to get one via retail because there were only a few pairs brought into the Philippines through Commonwealth. The good news is that my “source for everything hard to get” reseller, ShoefreakPH, was able to hook me up with one at a great price!
Here’s the unboxing and initial review video that I put together of the Undefeated x adidas Prophere. Check it out and don’t forget to smash the like button on YouTube and leave a comment!
I’ll chime in again in a few days on my observations about this pair of kicks, especially some functional thoughts on the Prophere silhouette since it looks like adidas will be focusing on it in the next few months.
Make sure you subscribe to my YouTube channel because I’ll be raffling away a brand new adidas Prophere once I hit 10,000 subscribers!
