Adidas x Raf Simons Ozweego Bunny History
Raf Simons is a Belgian fashion designer who is known for his futuristic designs. He first ventured into offering his own men’s wear label in 1995. 17 years after, which was in 2012, he was commissioned by Christian Dior to be their Creative Director but resigned 3 years after.
Calvin Klein took Simons in and named him as their Chief Creative Officer in 2016. He released his first collection under the Calvin Klein for the 2017 Fall collection and it became a momentous chapter for the company. Simons’ contribution to shaping modern fashion will further solidify the Calvin Klein as the leading lifestyle brand, globally.
Adidas did not miss the chance of collaborating with Raf Simons. They released a futuristic lineup of sneakers last 2017 for the Fall/Winter collection. They launched modern and experimental versions of the Stan Smith, Spirit, and Ozweego profiles and the new Detriot Runner.
The Adidas x Raf Simons Ozweego Bunny was introduced in the market last March 2017. It showcases a profile that was inspired by a 90’s running shoe. It gently modified the original Ozweego Bunny with a futuristic style. Indeed, the collaboration of Adidas and Raf Simons has created an instant cult classic.
Fit & Sizing
The Adidas x Raf Simons Ozweego Bunny has a well cushioned tongue and collar for a comfortable fit. The plastic heel counter can be seen that adds support to the foot. It also has the Adiprene+ midsole for an optimum flexible comfort. The lace-up closure with round laces is present for a secure fit. Most of the wearers reveal that this shoe runs small, thus they recommend buying a size up than the usual. It is offered exclusively in men’s sizes from 7 to 13 US in medium width.
Aside from the experimental shape of the Adidas x Raf Simons Ozweego Bunny, one feature that makes this pair striking is the presence of the gel pods. These signature pods are properly placed across the panels on the upper. These gel pods glow in light blue hue to add sporty dynamics to this pair.
Another notable feature is the multilayered rubber outsole of this pair. This chunky detail showcases the classic style of the iconic Ozweego line that has been modified to Raf Simons’ street wear taste. This feature is responsible for the undeniable appeal of this pair for many collectors.
