Rod Laver (Polyurethane Sole) – As many die hard fans remember, the Rod Laver shoe returned last year after having been gone for a while. While it was great to see the return of the classic shoe, it had been changed to a gum rubber sole which was much heavier. This was not well received as can be seen by the reviews.
Luckily adidas listened and brought back the original Rod Laver with the polyurethane sole which is much lighter. It is currently in stock now in the white/green colorway and black/white colorway in sizes 5-14 for $75. It features the mesh upper material, suede toe overlay, and of course the pivot-point polyurethane outsole.
This shoe has been highly sought after for years and now it is finally back! Pick yours up today before they are gone!
Update 2-11-16: The Polyurethane sole Rod Laver is sold out but the Gum Rubber sole is still in stock now.
Update 7-24-16: A new gold color for the Rod Laver shoe with polyurethane sole is available now in sizes 5-14 for $110.
