Raf Simons x adidas 2014 Fall/Winter Response Trail 2
Posted on August 29 2014
After getting an early preview of the Raf Simons x adidas Fall/Winter 2014 collection we’ve now got a better look at the newest take on a hit from last season’s collection: the Response Trail 2. Although this seasons will see the Response Trail 2 come in two distinct color ways - the other being a futuristic combo of orange, blue and silver - our focus will be on this warmer toned, multicolored mix. Despite the fact of not having noticeable adidas branding (except for the few small insignias here and there), Simons took full advantage on the technical aspect in this collaborative Response Trail. A mainstay in Simons' x adidas collections, it mixes fashion-forward styling and design elements and eye-catching finishes, with more functional features likes the ADIPRENE midsole, FORMOTION energy-return cushioning and a rugged outsole tread pattern; while the hinged heel counter/lace guard and achillies support strap “dominate” the design’s overall appearance. Featuring uppers comprised from quite a varied array of materials, including a nylon mesh base done in multiple weave patterns, matte and metallic leather paneling, and protruding plastic studs; these kicks are not for the faint of heart. Once again proving that fashion favors the bold.
