Rick Owens Tech Runner with adidas Springblade
The adidas Springblade is the sort of teched out shoe that you’ve never really expect to see in the lifestyle realm. And yet here it is, being borrowed by Rick Owens for his Spring/Summer 2015 collection with adidas. The sneaker has an upper that looks rather like the one on the adidas Tech Runner silhouette that also comes from Owens’ high end adidas line. That’s not all that’s going on for his Spring/Summer 2015 range, there’s a similar boot, as well as another giant boot that riffs off the shelltoe design.

I like the silhouette of the spring blade here. Reminds me of the Jesse Owens spikes but with spring blades. Sick.
I've seen really hideous designs by designers working with big sneaker brands, even from Owens but this is pretty good. Not too over the top, an acceptable blend with new adidas running technology. Would like to see on foot pictures though. Like the black runner spring blade.
