Raf Simons unveils new space-age Adidas trainers

A walk on the unearthly side...

Dior couturier Raf Simons has unveiled his latest footwear collection for Adidas, with colours and materials taken from the retro apparel of astronauts

This week, Raf Simons – who presented his Autumn/Winter 2015 menswear collection in Paris – released an updated range of his trainers designed for Adidas, as well as introducing two new designs.

This marks Simons fifth Adidas by Raf Simons range, which takes its style cues from the costumes worn by some of the first space explorers.

"Inspired by vintage astronaut suits and backpacks, moulded and machined details similar to authentic closures, zippers and straps are added," Adidas said in a statement. "Shiny versus matte distressed materials complete the look of outer space."
