The trend for chunky, oversized sneakers isn’t going away any time soon, with exaggerated kicks adorning the feet of the world’s most fashionable, from Paris to Pitti.
Fortunately, the arguable originator of the trend, the collaborative imprint from Belgian fashion god Raf Simons and sportswear giants adidas, is back once again this season with another take on their now-iconic Ozweego sneaker, presented in three new colourways.
You may know the drill by now, but here’s a rundown: the maximalist uppers sport an eclectic mix of materials, with supple premium leather contrasted with technical neoprene and twill, with raised piping along the whole length of the shoe, and the signature translucent latex bubbles featuring prominently to the lateral and medial sides, along with the tongue.
Keeping the look on-trend, the whole thing is sat atop a chunky, decoupled adiprene sole unit, with a hardwearing rubber outsole tread to help grip those city streets.
Coming in seasonal Light Purple, sophisticated Burgundy and classic Cream White colourways, the SS18 adidas x Raf Simons Ozweego sneaker is available in very limited numbers from Aphrodite Clothing now.
