Raf Simons Redesigns the Stan Smith for Spring 2016

As if a new drop of Raf Simons-designed Adidas sneakers didn’t generate enough buzz, the designer has taken on the task of redesigning the Stan Smith for his Spring 2016 collaborative collection. Called the Adidas by Raf Simons Stan Smith Strap, the sneakers feature three buckle straps across the bridge of the shoe. Available in forest green and black, both with white straps, and cobalt with red straps, this will undoubtedly be the shoe to beat during the February shows. (The style will be released in February 2016, just in time for the street-style set to pick up a pair.)

As for the rest of Simons’ Spring collection with Adidas, his classic Stan Smith shoe will come in white with mint and burgundy detailing and in solid navy, peach, lemon, and metallic silver and bronze. The Stan Smith Aged, a worn-in model, will be available in off-white and black, while both the Ozweego 2 and the Response Trail styles, seen in Simons’ Fall 2015 Adidas collection, are getting new colorways for Spring, as well. See them all in the slideshow—now you just have to figure out which will coordinate best with your Raf Simons madras hood…
