Recently unveiled during Paris Fashion Week, the Raf Simons x adidas Spring/Summer 2016 collection includes three staple designs with the reinterpreted Stan Smith, Ozweego 2 and Response Trail, but also introduces the new Raf Simons x adidas Stan Smith Strap.
The classic Raf Simons Stan Smith combines elegant leathers with the iconic “R” perforrated quarter, which comes in options of White, Light Copper, Silver, Blush Yellow, Ash Pink and Night Marine. For the Stan Smith Aged, the sneaker’s leather composition is given a vintage treatment, in an all-over Black and White hue.
In addition, the Raf Simons Ozweego 2 is offered in tones of Khaki, Deep Green, as well as Black, Blue and Brown tones. Furthermore, the Raf Simons Response Trail 2 receives White/Green or Red/Blue combinations with two TPU heel spoilers for different looks.
Finally, the new Raf Simons x adidas Stan Smith Strap is introduced. Raf Simons requested a buckle strap version of the Stan Smith bringing a new twist of refinement to the original comfort Velcro straps from the 1980’s. Elegant leathers are combined with Raf Simons branding and offered in nostalgic colorways overall.
With prices ranging from $455 – $730, the Raf Simons x adidas Spring/Summer 2016 footwear collection will debut at select Raf Simons stockists globally by mid-February 2016.
I’ve always been a fan of collaboration and it’s another strong showcasing once again. The Stan Smiths and Oswego 2’s look really nice in my opinion.
