Rick Owens' Curious Adidas 2015 Collection

Think the Yeezi Boost is an odd-looking designer trainer? Bah. Rick Owens was making wild footwear back when Kanye West was still making his first demo tape. 

Case in point: the 2015 Adidas collection. 

Revealed earlier this month in a crisp white facade, the latest release from the atomic-fuelled mind of Owens and Adidas sees the Springblade return in Gothic grab - the breathable textiles and luxury leather awash in black tones.

Joining the Springblade's low profile lines is a space age Wellington; voluminous layers of leather wrapping around the ankle to form a profile that wouldn't look out of place in the next Guardians of the Galaxy outing. 

Owens

The most subtle of the new releases is a remarkably sensible (relatively speaking) recasting of the shell-toed Superstar - borrowing the iconic toe cap for use in a lose, midtop suede number.

Set for release in select Adidas retailers, you can find them on US boutique site Wish. Prices start from £460.

Still, at least you've found the right designer shoe for reaching that tricky shelf of the cupboard?
