After announcing that the Wooster Street warehouse location would soon be closing, Adidas is already on the move in Soho: Last night saw the debut of a new pop-up store devoted to its line of 90's-inspired sneakers, appropriately named Tubular.
Though it's only open through Saturday, the space is worth a visit — poured concrete fixtures give it an ultra-cool vibe, a customization bar lets shoppers touch and feel different sneaker materials, and as is the case with seemingly every new store, there's an art gallery in the back.
As far as the sneakers themselves go, there's a range of limited-edition styles, including one that's exclusive to the NYC pop-up. And if you thought they looked a little familiar, you're not the only one — more than one person has compared the collection to a certain shoe designer by a certain rapper-slash-presidential hopeful. They're cheaper, though: certain women's styles on the website are available for as low as $77. To try them on in-person, however, stop by 115 Spring Street — you've got until 5pm Saturday.
