With 200 singles titles, including Grand Slams as both an amateur and professional, to his name, Rod Laver can make a claim to the mantle of greatest tennis player of all time that holds up today. With a playing style that analysists described as ‘technically faultless,’ Laver excelled on every court surface. This smooth versatility was reflected in a signature adidas shoe, which incidentally, makes a strong greatest of all-time case of its own.
The original Rod Laver featured nylon mesh uppers with a rounded leather toebox. Over time, the design evolved to its most well-known and beloved form, which incorporated polyurethane midsoles and a suede mudguard.
adidas Consortium celebrates the championship legacy of Rod Laver, with a quartet of luxurious leather editions. The designs play on Laver’s multi-surface excellence, as each individual model features a different leather texture.
With reptile scales, ostrich skin, cracked and aniline natural hide on offer, the Rod Laver is still effortlessly winning match points in 2020.
