Fashion designers are staying in the game for this week’s edition of “Sneaker Freak Friday”. The adidas by Rick Owens A/W 14-15 IMMEDIATE RELEASE was showcased this past men’s wear fashion week in Paris.
For the second season of this collaboration, Rick Owens exclusively developed a new silhouette for adidas, the Tech Runner. As one of the leaders of fashion’s avant-garde, Owens has further refined his minimalist aesthetic by taking inspiration from Stealth Bombers for the Tech Runner and realizing it through a reduced pallet of materials and color. High quality suede and leathers are combined with an innovative neoprene fit. The midsole is made of a one piece EVA with a full-length rubber outsole and a distinctive Rick Owens saw tooth profile. The Tech Runner silhouette features perforated three stripes and carries Rick Owens’ signature on the heel strike as well as the adidas Style Globe logo as a sign-off.
Presented this January during Paris Men’s Fashion Week, the Tech Runner will drop in mid July 2014 in black, black/bone, milk and milk/black, and retails for € 490. Ouch! Only a real Sneaker Freak understands the price of kicks!
