adidas tubular release Adidas Tubular Release & Stockists

Anticipation for the release of the Adidas Tubular runner has steadily climbed and now that day is here (at for those of you in Europe). Hype first started building through blurry leaked photos of the sneaker allegedly linking the design to the forthcoming Kanye West ‘Yeezi’ collection. Since then we’ve seen a steady flood of news and photos from sneaker and streetwear websites, basically billing the shoe as a brokeboy version of the Adidas Y-3 Qasa. Seeing that the retail price of $110 is less than 1/3 the price of the Qasa, it’s no wonder that there’s so many people excited to rock these sneakers. The sneaker itself is an amalgamation of popular Adidas models; borrowing the sole unit from the aforementioned Y-3 Qasa and the back support from the ZX Flux.  The sneaker is an attempt to update the Adidas classics line with a more minimal high-tech feel and in that goal it’s successful. My only criticism of the sneaker is that the  branded front leather tab feels out of place and takes away from the other clean lines.

Expect them to sell out quickly but rest assured that more colorways of the sneaker are on their way and there should be more stock arriving at stores soon.

rick owens for adidas 2014 spring summer tech runner 1 Adidas x Rick Owens SS14 Tech Runner

rick owens for adidas 2014 spring summer tech runner 2 Adidas x Rick Owens SS14 Tech Runner

Adidas and Rick Owens team up again on their second collaborative sneaker model the Tech Runner. The first release was a love it or hate it affair and it looks like the same will hold true this time. Inspiration this time around comes via the B-2 Stealth Bomber, and you can see these angular lines transalted on the EVA midsole. I actually prefer these to the original model though the grey suede/sand colorway stands out as the one I’d wear from the bunch. Expect these to release later this summer so look out for updates here on their release.

rick owens for adidas 2014 springsummer 4 Rick Owens x Adidas Spring/Summer 2014

Adidas have been making headlines all this last quarter of the year with their signing of Kanye West, their collaboration with Raf Simons and the re-release of the Stan Smiths.

You’ve probably seen these before but now we can take a look at all the colorways of the Rick Owens Adidas sneaker which is dropping for the Spring/Summer 2014 season. To me the best colorway is still the white/black joints. I’m not really feeling the brown or tan colors as much, but time will tell if they grow on me. I’m on the fence about buying these myself but I’m definitely looking forward to seeing and trying them on in person.

The shoes will be available for €440-490 EUR (approximately $600-670 USD) at Sneakerboy and other select outlets.

adidas raf ss14 7 Raf Simons x Adidas SS14 Sneakers

adidas raf ss14 14 Raf Simons x Adidas SS14 Sneakers

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.

rick owens adidas 1 First Image of the Rick Owens Adidas SS14 Sneaker

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.

This editorial from the ‘1997’ issue of Fucking Young is inspired by rave and electronic music culture in the mid to late 90s. There are some great pieces featured with everything from Raf Simons , Highland, Adidas and Siki Im being used to paint a drug-induced portrait. Ian Bradley definetly killed it with the styling on this one, check out his Style Profile if you haven’t already.

rome fortune 7 Interview with Rome Fortune

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.

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.
