Rick Owens has adapted the designs of his 2014 Runners for the sports brand to create two styles of boot and a revised trainer, each with the same chunky two-part sole.

The Runner Stretch Boot has an upper that extends up to just below the knee, available in sand, brown and black suede, as well as brown fur.
