x Raf Simons RS DETROIT RUNNER
Raf Simons’s Adidas silhouettes run the gamut from subtle reworking to total reimagination. One of the most extreme models to result from this collaborative output is the Detroit Runner, a classic, canvas court shoe placed atop an outsized, futuristic tread outsole.
For Spring/Summer 2019 Raf Simons looks back to the chronologically retro but spiritually ahead of its time aesthetic of glam rock. The visions of a futuristic, space age flamboyance that broke through the unkempt and earth tone dominated post-hippie hangover, are expressed with vivid, acidic, colorways and mirrored surfaces applied to the aggressively modern outsole design, creating a dynamic visual contrast with the classic black and white palette of the canvas court shoe.
