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.
