Editor’s Notes: Raf Simons and adidas’ longstanding partnership continues into Spring/Summer 2019 with a new range of glammed-up colorways of the designer’s iconic RS Ozweego.
The shoe’s sole and the lower part of the upper have been dipped in a mirrored TPU film, a touch that, according to adidas, is inspired by the glam rock era of the ’70s, a central theme of Simons’ SS19 collection. The style was unveiled at Simons’ show in June, where the designer sent models down the runway in ’70s-inspired platform leather boots.
