Adidas has been cranking out the designer collaborations with the Yohji Yamamoto Superstar, the Rick Owens collaboration and the current season Raf Simons joints. For Spring/Summer 2014 more Adidas are on the way and they’re just as crazy as the FW13 ones. Some would say they’re ugly, but if you saw the SS14 Paris runway show , Raf found a way to make some of them work. Personally I can’t cosign many of these design but I do enjoy the boot and the Air Max 1/90 inspired sneakers. There’s something childish and pop-art about them, I have a feeling these will be something alot of Raf fans will regret sleeping on.

In grade school all I wore were Adidas shelltoes. I had a bunch of pairs in different colors and the sneaker still holds a special place in my heart. Adidas Originals teamed up with Yohji Yamamoto for this special model of the Superstar, dubbed the Y’s Super Position. The hard shelltoe is gone replaced by a smooth leather toebox. The zig-zag seams feature loose thread that can be left to drag and fray or cut entirely.
Available in a black and white colorway you can find these August 10th at Y’s stores Tokyo, No. 6 London, No. 74 Berlin, No. 42 Paris, and select boutiques worldwide.

Hypebeast dropped this video previewing the upcoming Rick Owens x Adidas trainers set to drop in time for Spring 2014. First seen during Rick’s recent Paris runway show, the video captures the shoes in greater detail. The uppers mix premium leather with nylon and is accented by white suede. There are three colorways here, all white, all black, and a mostly black upper with a white midsole. In typical Rick Owens fashion these were a bit jarring to look at originally but they’ve steadily been growing on me since pics first leaked. Expect to find them retailing somewhere in the $350-500 price range.
It was announced last week that Rick Owens would be collaborating on a sneaker for the Spring/Summer 2014 season. Now the first image of the sneaker has been released. It’s quite a departure from what Adidas is normally known for and even more out there than the Y-3 sneaker designs. The branding is subtle , taking cues from the perforations found on a Stan Smith sneaker, but the pod-like outsole are something I’ve never seen before. While early speculators were excited at the prospect of a cheaper Rick sneak, these will retail in the ballpark of $400-500. I’m still not quite sure how I feel about these, but feel free to express your thoughts in the comments section.

2013 has been a big year for Rome Fortune. Coming out the Atlanta scene he’s built up significant buzz with his ‘Beautiful Pimp’ mixtape. Frequent collaborators C4 and Childish Major have been lacing him with experimental instrumentals that compliment his effortless laid-back delivery. He was a feature on the recent Gucci Mane joint ‘Stripes’ and just ripped a set alongside PTP family Gila Monster at 285 Kent in Brooklyn.
Outside of his music prowess, Rome is someone you’ll always see expressing his personal style through his clothing choices. When we first met, he told me that he had been a fan of Third Looks for some time, so it’s nice to bring things full circle with this feature. Rome and I had a conversation that touches on hip-hop style, girls and world rap domination.
Be sure to check the brand video for his single ‘Get the Guap” HERE and click through to read the interview.
This was the first Y-3 show I’ve had the pleasure of seeing in person. The location was an abandoned factory space in the lower east side which provided a historical contrast from this futurist sportswear by Yohji Yamamoto. In the collection there’s pretty straight on takes on sportswear staples such as track jackets and sneakers but my favorite pieces were the ones that blended signature Yohji shapes with synthetic materials and minimal Y-3 branding.
