adidas by Rick Owens Stretches Runners Into Boots
The adidas by Rick Owens partnership continues for another season as the fourth collection between the two brands was presented during the designer’s Autumn/Winter 2015 collection. Inspired by the widely known Rick Owens Runners from 2014, this new release transforms the now-iconic shoes into three new models, all thankfully fully clothed.
Taking fashion-influenced sportswear to a whole new level, the Runner Stretch Boot is a high boot with a 40cm-long fitted and draped upper, available in black and three shades of brown. For a lower version, the Runner Ankle Stretch Boot is the same design, but with a 19cm high upper. Both styles are made in suede with a stretch Velcro panel in the back in addition to one special fur look.
Aside from the two new boots, the original Rick Owens Runner will also be reintroduced with a less padded collar. The revised silhouette will be available in all-black full suede as well as a black mixed leather edition with a white outer sole. Once again, Rick Owens takes adidas into an elegant and futuristic realm that is wonderfully unexpected.
This unisex collection will be available worldwide from mid-July 2015 on the online store and select retailers.
