10/19/14 Adidas by Raf Simons A/W 14-15
The future arrives with some bounce in its step. At least that’s what it looks like in Raf Simons’s Autum-Winter 2014 collection for Adidas. Trainers from the last collab reemerge in space-ready new colorways (including rich camos) and skeletal soles that look like each pair is hovering above ground. You just know the Belgian visionary will be outfitting the army if ever we declare intergalactic warfare against extraterrestrial forces.
Besides taking on the Stan Smith classic with a dousing of NASA suit orange and an obligatory R perforated at the sides, a couple new silhouettes perfect for treading Mars have been introduced. A salute to the extra-protective bunny boots used by the U.S. military, the Bunny Bounce Boot sports seamless patent leather and comes equipped with Adidas’s Mega Bounce technology. Talk about shoes made for the moon.
