When we buy a pair of boxfresh white trainers, our number one fear is inadvertently treading in a muddy puddle. We have been known to cry if this happens within a week.
But fortunately/unfortunately, that's not something that need concern us with this pair of pre-muddied trainers. The fruit of a collaboration between designer Kazuki Kuraishi, conceptual artist Ryan Gander and Adidas Originals, the snappily-titled Adidas x KZK ZXZ 750 RG 84-Lab is a perfectly snow white trainer, with the addition of synthetic 'mud' to the sole and base of the shoe.
The idea is to portray a theme of performance sportswear with a contemporary streetwear edge; are these edgy, or do they just make you want to give them a clean?
They're available now for £129 from End Clothing; you'd be mud - sorry, mad - to miss out.
