There’s nothing about the Creative Recreation Adonis Mid that makes it more suited to travel than your favorite pair of kicks, so we’re not exactly sure why the California-based sneaker brand is positioning it for “fashionable travelers.” If you’ve been jaded by too much time spent on the road (or just living in the city all your life) and looking for something less than pedestrian, though, these stylish pair of shoes are definitely something you’ll probably respond to.
A part of the lifestyle footwear outfit’s fall/winter collection, it’s a heightened version of their regular Adonis silhouette, making it more suitable for wearing amidst the chilly winds of the season. Whether you’re actually traveling, going to a ball game with the fam, or heading over to a friend’s house to work on an excessively-designed pen that you plan to crowdfund on Kickstarter, this thing should wear nice with most any street clothes in your closet.
The Creative Recreation Adonis Mid features the style’s signature side zippers, which allow for easy slip-on access even without undoing the laces. Upper is made from premium full-grain leather with dimpled (diamond?) patterns on the surface to create a unique-looking texture, with padded EVA Quest outsole to ensure comfortable use. To handle the wet streets of fall, the outsole comes with rubber tread pods on the front and rear, with a moisture-wicking microfiber lining providing excellent breathability. It comes in three monochromatic colorways: white, red, and black.
Available now, the Creative Recreation Adonis Mid is priced at $120.
