Four sneakers from the banger-packed adidas by Raf Simons FW16 drop are now online over at New York’s RISE45.
Alongside beautiful editions of the familiar lace-up Stan Smiths, the east coast outlet is stocking two iterations of the new Comfort silhouette in a stark monochrome black and white, with the second colorway flipped in tonal white with black heel tab. The custom trademark perforated “R” makes a comeback on all sneaker’s flanks.
The collection drops barely a few weeks after Raf was confirmed as head of the iconic American luxe fashion label Calvin Klein following a lengthy journey through the rumour mill. Nevertheless, this new FW16 collection with the German sportswear giant is arguably his strongest yet, with high quality contrasting leathers and bright, yet deep, rich colorways being a collection hallmark, as if in stark contrast to the pastel shades seen across many of the fashion releases earlier in spring.
