From oversized platform sneakers to chunky goth boots, there is a clearly defined movement in the footwear industry that becomes even more apparent with the debut of the adidas by Raf Simons' Spring/Summer 2019 collection. Amid the 70s/80s-inspired grungy garments, the capsule draws attention to a recurring silhouette of footwear.

For the upcoming season, the adidas x Raf Simons collaboration is sharing pairs of differently textured chunky goth boots. From suede and metallic silver uppers to glossy and white coatings, the footwear is essentially a tonal monochromatic leather-made model.

In addition, the sturdy platform is reported to be "a hybrid of Raf Simons' Ozweego and Detroit Runner sole units," which gives a distinctly sporty presence to the chunky goth boots.
