For the second season of this collaboration, Rick Owens exclusively developed a new silhouette for adidas: the Tech Runner. The fashion designer continues to stay true to his minimalist aesthetic by taking inspiration from Stealth Bombers for the Tech Runner and realizing it through a reduced palette of materials and color. The Tech Runner features high quality suede and leathers, 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 sawtooth profile. Furthermore 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. The sneaker will be presented this week during Paris Men’s Fashion Week and will become available from mid July 2014 as part of Rick Owens Fall/Winter 2014 collection in black, black/bone, milk and milk/black, and retails for €490.
