Adidas continues its collaborative relationship with Rick Owens. This time around the sneaker looks more like a traditional Pro Model, but placed upon the same sole from the Geobasket/Rick dunk. This new sneaker is aptly named the Mastodon after the latest Rick collection by the same name. These won’t come cheap with the retail price hitting the $1000 mark, which makes these almost as expensive as mainline Rick. These are available at RISE and other boutiques.

Many shots, drawings, and stills from the film part of a new exhibition “Anime Architecture,” now on view at Berlin’s Museum for Architectural Drawing.
