Editor’s Notes: One of Raf Simons’ low-top adidas silhouettes, the RS Detroit Runner, has been reimagined in high-top format. Instead of a canvas upper, the shoe has been given a rubberized plastic makeover, while the tooling stays the same.
The rubberized plastic is a nod to the fetish elements of glam rock, while the black and white photograph above the ankle lends the boot a punk rock vibe.
The RS Detroit High will be available in three color combinations — red/black, black/pink, and white/gray — and will be available at select retailers worldwide starting January 24.
