The adidas LXCON is an interesting new look for the Brand with the Three Stripes. The shoe begins with what appears to be a one-piece mesh upper with extra addition for support. First, a translucent tube zigzags back and forth across the upper, acting as a lacing system and extending to the heel as a Lexicon's pull tabs. Next, three enlarged stripes are laid over each side, giving the shoe adidas' signature look. The midsole, made from adidas' adiPRENE+, features sleek new tooling that is marked by a large arc around the heel, which assumably acts similar to the Ultra Boost's heel counter.
