The ongoing collaboration between Raf Simons and adidas Originals has resulted in some rather futuristic and outlandish riffs on performance running shoes, but the duo’s reworkings of the Stan Smith have always taken the opposite approach. Eschewing silicone bubbles and eye-catching overlays for simple, subtle details, the Belgian designer continues to stay true to the classic sneaker’s minimal aesthetic and timeless appeal. Case in point is the Raf Simons x adidas Originals Stan Smith collection for Spring/Summer 2015, which presents the collaborative silhouette in a variety of luxurious, monochromatic makeups. Featuring smooth, premium leather uppers and vulcanized rubber sole units, each version is distinguished once again by subtle branding in the form of “R”-shaped perforations, debossed Raf Simons logo and tongue graphics, making for clean, modern renditions of the popular tennis shoe. Look for the Raf Simons x adidas Originals Spring/Summer 2015 Stan Smith in onix/white or red/white now at the HYPEBEAST Store.
