Polls: Do You Like the Rick Owens x adidas Collaboration?

Call it an overblown Seinfeld reference, call it a space shoe, or call it the next great silhouette – but Rick Owens‘ new collaborative endeavor with adidas is impossible to deny. From a design perspective, especially given Owens’ forward-thinking aesthetic, the sneaker is actually impressive – separating the heel and toe from one another is an interesting progression in the way that high heels or sandals might affect one’s walking. Above all, it’s an interruptive piece, blending the realms of both high top and low top, and furthermore, athletic and ornate. Of course, it’s ultimately up to the consumer to ponder if this sneaker is yet another uninspired cog in the machine that is high fashion, or a piece that truly revolutionizes the way we think about sneaker construction. Will the audience allow the possibility for a high fashion designer, with the help of one of the world’s finest athletic manufacturers, to create a revolutionary shoe? Will our opinions change depending on who adopts first? Is the sneaker meant to be laced all the way? Let’s talk about it. Let us know how you feel in the polls and comments below.
