global: adidas by rick owens s/s 2014 collection

the word's been out for a while, and we know of plenty of peeps that can't wait to get their hands on some of the footwear that designer extraordinaire rick owens has crafted for adidas. the adidas by rick owens s/s 2014 collection combines the breakthrough technology of the latter with the advanced sense of aesthetics of the american designer. as one of the leaders of fashion’s avant-garde, rick owens has defined an unmistakable minimalist, architectural and graphic style that's all his own. the collab collection very much incorporates all these qualities, featuring a series of signature styles composed of leather and nylon mixes in black, white, gray, pearl, and bone.

like most examples of great design, the shoes arose from a practical need: owens’ personal desire for chic sneakers to motivate his cardio efforts. the resulting collection features one trainer in six unique material and color combinations for men and four for women. select models display only the slightest hint of branding: a barely perceptible three-stripe perforation along the side. the collection debuts at the upcoming edition of men's fashion week in paris - click [here] for some of the cool looks presented - and will drop in select stores across the planet next december. the price tag of these trophy sneakers range from eur 400 to eur 500.
