After checking out the Raf Simons for adidas Stan Smith “Stripes & Straps” pack last week, we now take a look at the Response Trail first seen several months back. Perhaps the most divisive sneaker thus far from the collaboration, the silhouette picks up where the De Stijl hiking boot left off, thanks in large part to the striking colors and unorthodox lines. The collaboration takes one of adidas’s trail-specific styles from the ’90s as a starting point before going under the knife of the renowned Belgian designer. Besides the shape many find jarring, the sneakers’ adjustable plastic heel tab adds yet another dimension to the collection’s “shoe in shoe” concept.
Pick up a pair now from No.74.
