From the ground up

Following its initial presentation, we take a closer look at the “Rising Star 1” sneaker from the recently unveiled Raf Simons for adidas Spring/Summer 2014 collection. Although certainly not for everyone, the shoe boasts a high-level of design that we think most can appreciate at least on an aesthetic level. The athletic giant, meanwhile, continues to push the boundaries of designer collaborations and have quickly become a major contender in the high-fashion meets streets sneaker game. Available now, you can pick up the “Rising Star 1” for $440 here.
