Apparently when Raf Simons isn't wooing the hearts and closets of fashion folk everywhere with couture designs for Dior, he's designing sneakers. Adidas sneakers, specifically.
Adidas isn't a stranger to high-end collabs, counting Stella McCartney, Jeremy Scott, and Yohji Yamamoto ranges in its inventory, but it might be the first time the sneakers showed up on the Paris runway. Those attending last night's menswear show got the first look at the five pairs in three colorways, which will arrive in stores this July.
