With summer right around the corner, I wanted to put together a style guide to one of my favorite sneakers – the adidas Original Tubulars.
These sneakers haven’t gotten the hype they deserve, especially the women’s version. I went out and found my favorite Tubulars as well as some basic outfit pairings for you to take summer 16 by storm.
WMNS Tubular Triple Whites
I love this white on white on white colorway – they’re perfect for a sunny Saturday afternoon and go well with almost anything you’d like to wear them with. Kylie Jenner pairs them with a light grey tracksuit, a great look for the cooler summer days.

WMNS Tubular Defiant Triple Red Snakeskin
Triple red sneakers are always a good idea – the all red Tubular Defiants are no exception. Style blogger Jana Rose Carrero puts them to work with a leather skirt, writing “I went for the scarlet pair, for its pop of color and modern feel”.
- Price: $110

WMNS Tubular Defiant (All Whites)
This Tubular has a slightly different body shape and design than the previous. It features a large strap on the back and a bandage strap across the middle, giving them a slightly different feel from the base Tubular sneaker. None the less, these are another great addition to your summer wardrobe, going perfectly paired down with a pair of sweats or shorts.

WMNS Tubular Defiant “Blanch Purple” Mids
These tubulars add a nice pop of pastel purple (with varying shades) throughout the body of the shoe, while keeping a white tubular sole. They follow the mid sole design of the Defiant version, but add a cross body band and suede heel panel for a nice unique twist. These go perfect with a pair of skinny black jeans, slightly rolled up to really show off the contours of the sneaker.

Sneakersnstuff x adidas Tubular “Shades of White” Pack
The brand with 3 stripes teamed up with the guys at Sneakersnstuff to put out a ‘shades of white’ pack with some serious summer vibes. The body of the sneaker is very similar to the triple white version of the Tubulars, with some subtle (but huge) differences. The shade of white is a little closer to ivory, and the sneaker switched up to some pastel pink laces, really helping the sneaker to pop in a different lighting.
