Raf Simons Panelled Running Sneaker
Belgian fashion designer Raf Simons earned plenty of exposure over the past year-plus thanks to A$AP Rocky’s upmarket lyrical leanings. 2013 sees both of these gentlemen partnered up with adidas, and with the first news since Rocky showed off a range in January, we see the a Simons sneaker that looks at first glance quite similar to that selection. This Raf Simons Panelled Running Sneaker is more of a prelude to his Three Stripes collabo, an abstract multicolor creation that unlike similarly visually engaging Puma collabs utilizes a patchwork construction that really brings the relatively muted though wildly varied palette to life. There’s a lot going on here so you’ll want to have a closer look below, then grab a pair from top-end shops like Trés Bien.
