The Raf Simons x Adidas Collection images have been revealed! The modern collection of sneakers and athletic boots is a nod to retro-futurism, an inspiration that is regularly used by the famed fashion designer.

Known for his stunning work at Jil Sander, his current post as head designer at Dior and his own line of menswear, Raf Simons is making waves yet again with this nostalgic collection of athletic accessories.

The Raf Simons x Adidas Collection is representative of the designer's forward-thinking aesthetic along with the sportswear label's similar affinity for mixing modern ideas with nostalgic inspirations. The designer's second collaboration with Adidas features 80s inspired moon boot designs and sculptural sneakers that are clad in primary color panels. In addition to these two memorable designs, Simons' collaboration collection also features a more understated tennis shoe that features a more minimalist design.
