Rick Owens, an American designer with glamorous grunge clothing and shoes, has produced a limited edition collection of running shoes for Adidas. The start of sales is scheduled for June 27, 2013.
The collection includes six bows for men and four for women. A distinctive feature of the design is the uniformity of the silhouette, however, the models are available in different colors and materials, leather, suede, nylon or canvas.
Retail prices will range from $ 400 to $ 500 per pair. By comparison, Rick Owens basketball shoes are now priced from $ 1200 to $ 1600.
“I work like a damn and I hate cardiovascular equipment,” Owens explains the idea of the collaboration, “and when I realized that I was already 50, I decided it was time for me to do something for my heart and lungs. That was the starting point. And then I thought, what can I put on a run for, because in my basketball shoes on the street I will look like a dinosaur passing through the Tuileries garden. And then I called Adidas. "
