Raf Simons (RUNNER) is in its third season, and it’s safe to say the collection has officially found its feet. Debuting new takes on familiar models such as the Cycloid, Cylon, and Solaris, Simons’ runway-worn sneaker-shoe hybrids are served up in looks that are more technical than ever before, resulting in the best shoes to come from the Belgian designer since his stint with adidas.

Kicking off with the Cycloid-4-2001 in black, we find the familiar ankle boot style — which is made using 50% cow leather, 35% nylon, and 15% cow suede — feature a new heel unit. This new heel is similar to the midsole found on the Raf Simons x adidas Bounce from FW14, appearing with an abstract, circular-cut-out look that’s attached to a Raf Simons-branded heel clip. At the rear is a zipper, while at the front, the almond toe remains.

Joining the boot line-up are two pairs of Cylon-22 sneakers, one in black and another in anthracite. To switch things up, the upper has been predominantly crafted from nylon while leather now hits up the mid-panel in an abstract manner, before suede has been used to detail the toe and heel areas. A zip still appears at the rear, and the architectural sole unit is the same as before.

Last but by no means least is the Solaris-22 Low also in black, and again is made largely from nylon with leather and suede applications replicating the design of the aforementioned Cylon-22.

Raf Simons’ (RUNNER) FW21 collection can be seen above and is available to purchase from Machine-A now.
