Once again adidas puts out another seasonal upgrade, this time winterizing the infamous Conductor Hi.
Smooth black leather makes up the majority of the shoe, with subtle grey hints in the base of the toe box, outsoles, and trefoil emblem on the felt tongue. The shoe’s upper extends to a stiff felt cylinder, styled with a black and grey herringbone tweed pattern, that wraps high around the ankle, providing warmth, support, and moisture protection.
Rubber webbing connects the felt and leather upper, to provide further defense against water. While innovative, this additional structural feature makes it logistically impossible to pop the tongue out, and thus the shoes are much more suitable for utilitarian use (and not casual or leisure wear).
Released for the 2008 Winter Craftsmanship pack the shoes are now quite hard to come by in any regular sizes. Also released in this pack was a Rod Laver, two Nizza variations, three different ZX 700′s, and a Gazelle 2.
