The popularity of high fashion sneakers have grew exponentially during the last few years. And while designers and labels were keen on utilizing the best of materials, most designs largely missed the mark when it came to technical features, with the exception of the Raf Simons x adidas collaboration. For Spring/Summer 2014, the creative director of fashion house Christian Dior returns with a line of 20+ footwear designs for mens, all taking full advantage of adidas’ technical prowess. From ADIPRENE cushioning, BOUNCE outsole, to high-tech mesh and reflective elements, the models serve to fill a niche between the ostentatious line by adidas Originals by Jeremy Scott and the minimalistic approach of Y-3 with Yohji Yamamoto. The adidas by Raf Simons Men’s Footwear Collection for Spring/Summer 2014 is available now through select adidas retail locations globally.
