adidas by Raf Simons continues its reinvention of the iconic RS Ozweego runner, revealing an exclusive, limited-edition, red-white-and-blue version in celebration of Independence Day. The shoe is an update on the RS Replicant Ozweego, the deconstructed style first seen for Spring/Summer 2018.
Born in Belgium, Simons has long mined the American psyche and experience as inspiration for his designs and now resides in New York. As a tribute to his new home, the designer subtly infuses the RS Replicant Ozweego
with a patriotic color palette. He imagines the shoe’s futuristic two-layer, mesh-and-synthetic upper in crisp white, its EVA heel cap in cobalt blue, and its rubber outsole in signal red.
A powerful statement of contemporary design, the RS Replicant Ozweego features unique cut-out panels in place of the transparent silicone windows seen in the original RS Ozweego runner. The shoe will be packaged in an exclusive boxed set, each pair sold with three sets of matching geometric-printed knit socks.
The RS Replicant Ozweego pack – USA Colors edition receives a selective retail introduction at only 50 stores worldwide on the 28th of June.
