Raf Simons Redefines the adidas Stan Smith

adidas continues to expand its creative blueprint. The consigliere of the three stripes have allowed their designers free reign to reimagine its quintessential silhouettes. Such is realized with Raf Simons latest Spring/Summer 2014 offering, the Raf Simons adidas Stan Smith “Stripes & Straps” Pack.

At first glance, these kicks don’t appear to be the classic tennis shoes sneakerheads have come to know and love. That’s because Simons gave these ‘70s trainers a lux facelift. The Belgian designer ditched a few key features and put his own imprints in their place: the laces are swapped out for snap button straps, Simons ditched Smith’s likeness on the tongue and heel tab only to find the designer’s name in their place.

The “Stripes & Straps” pack employs etched premium leather in colorways of black with yellow/white stripes and white with royal/green stripes. Versatility is implied when it comes to these addys, you can dress them up or down. We have yet to see how far adidas will push the boundaries of design in footwear, but there’s much more blooming on the horizon for the athletic apparel giants.

The Raf Simons x adidas Stan Smith “Stripes and Straps” pack is available now from No. 74 in Berlin. A stateside release is yet TBA. Stay tuned.
