Extending his range for Adidas, Rick Owens used the Springblade soles developed by the brand to improve running performance on the base of three new designs.



"With the upcoming season Rick Owens brings together his unmistakable design identity combining it with the highest level of innovation by using the adidas Springblade tooling," said a statement from Adidas.

The Blade High reworks a boxing boot silhouette with the running shoe sole and features an upper with covered lacing and Adidas' three stripes motif marked with perforations.

Also incorporating the springy soles and perforated lines, the Blade Runner trainers are designed to hug the foot like a sock with supportive side panelling.

    So I assume that if I have to ask how much a pair of these costs then I probably can’t afford it?
