Raf Simons x adidas
It’s out with the brogue and in with the sports shoe. With a swell in the number of brands who have pushed the humble trainer in 2013, Belgian designer Raf Simons captains the trend of multi-purpose, purpose-built footwear.
His most recent addition to the ongoing adidas collaboration is more on trend than ever before, melding adidas’ durable athletic performance with Simons’ stylish and futuristic sensibilities. Re-imagining and re-designing silhouettes from adidas’ 1990s archive, iconic models are injected with a flash of contemporary cool.
The shoes are finished with AdiPrene midsoles and cushioning AdiWear outsoles, which will put a spring in any man’s step. True to Simons’ signature design style, they sport a dark base tone, but arresting pops of colour in the form of mesh detailing and opalescent silicone bubbles make a real statement and emphasise their futuristic feel.
Five different designs are available in three unique colour ways, which include teal, rose pink, burgundy and yellow set against black or navy uppers.
With their bold take on a menswear classic, the limited edition Raf Simons x adidas collaboration will bring a fresh attitude and statement appeal to your casual wardrobe. With sports shoes fast becoming the footwear silhouette of the moment, this Raf Simons for adidas collection is one step ahead of the rest. It is no wonder the SS13 models featured in our top ten trainer brands article earlier this year.
