Previewed on the runway at Paris Fashion Week, the Spring/Summer 2016 footwear collection from acclaimed designer Raf Simons and adidas is fully unveiled here, featuring three carry-over silhouettes — the Stan Smith, Ozweego 2 and Response Trail — and also a new style in the form of the Stan Smith Strap. The latter takes the venerable court shoe and adds Velcro straps to a leather build in three nostalgic colorways, while the original Stan Smith gets the sigature Raf treatment with a perforated “R” quarter and various leather finishes, including metallic finishes and pastel shades. While the Stan Smith celebrates the adidas heritage, the Ozweego 2 looks to the future, featuring a layered upper with a running-inspired profile and transparent silicone windows. Two eye-catching colorways of the Response Trail, both constructed from mesh and suede and a bulky Adiprene sole unit, round out the collection.
The footwear range will launch February 2016, with retail prices ranging from $455 – $730. Available at the adidas concept stores Paris No42 and Berlin No74, as well as select boutiques around the world.
