Rick Owens’ FW16 off-the-runway collaboration with adidas is the Mastodon pro-model sneaker in black textured leather. The high-end collaboration kicks feature pearl grey shell toecaps, rubber shark-tooth soles, and eight eyelet closures. With an upper completely done in sleek, black premium calf leather, with a goat leather lining, the shoe links between lux runway detailing with easy-to-wear sneaker elements. The toe and sole of the shoe are both done completely in rubber, to ensure comfort and a contrast from the heavy leather upper. The pro-model silhouette has become absolute iconic, and this version fuses Rick Owens’ avant-garde aesthetic with adidas’ model. The texture of the leather itself is heavily embossed and grainy, contrasted by the amplified classic rubber cupsole and shell toe of the shoe.
The mid-cut shoe is versatile and perfect to pair with anything from simple street apparel to an evening ensemble. The chunky midsole and rigid outsole of the shoe only adds to its versatility.
Rick Owens footwear collections are available exclusively at select retailers worldwide, including J-01 in Hong Kong.
