Velcro Sneaker Trend

There’s been a ton of sneaker trends this year, from platforms to sock-boot sneakers. One of the sneaker trends currently dominating the streetwear, fashion scene comes from the norm-core trend, falling under the dad shoes trend umbrella, the velcro sneaker. Velcro sneakers are what we all used to wear before we learned to tie our shoe laces, now brands are giving them a grown-up spin. The velcro sneaker could easily be called an ugly trend, but they make an outfit chic. The clean design combined with the bulky velcro allows the chicness of any outfit to shine. The key is to wear velcro sneakers without looking like a child, so pair them with a loose, wide-leg pant or a knit dress. For guys velcro sneakers with a suit pant or slack is a clean look, to give an overall rugged look pairing them with slim ripped jean is the way to go. Brands like adidas and Vans have taken some of their most iconic silhouettes and applied the velcro aesthetic to them. Taking the Stan Smith’s iconic clean design and adding a velcro system to them elevates the sought after shoe into the current trend, while Vans put the velcro on their Old Skool model, making it a quintessential skater shoe with the easy on and off system. The velcro updates are a nice taste of nostalgia. Rime locations has a variation of velcro sneakers.

Alexander Wang X Adidas Season 2

Alexander Wang and adidas are continuing their relationship with a Season 2 drop this summer. This past spring the duo dropped their collaboration filled with activewear, taking sportswear staples and mixing them with high-fashion twists. The range was sold from unmarked vans and packaged in garbage bags. Keeping with the the distinct aesthetic of combining the parallel, Wang combines the worlds of cycling and rave culture. A visual directed by Ryan Staake showcases the athletic gear and how it seamlessly moves from work to play, showcasing bike messengers biking through the city hanging posters and delivering packages, ending their night at an underground rave. The collection mixes adidas’ highly popular sports, cycling and Wang’s intrigue with rave culture. Although the two influences are so far apart, they both share skin-tight and neon in common, which are comfortable for biking or a night of dancing. Like the first collection, the second will be sold in an unconventional way, posters and billboards advertising the range will boast the number (917)512-7715 throughout the streets of New York City. Customers will have to text the number to place orders by code, then a bike messenger, wearing the collection, delivers the package, and instead of garbage bags the pieces will be completely wrapped in duct tape.

Daniel Arsham And Adidas Collaborate On A Sneaker

Following the release of  Daniel Arsham’s short film hourglass, and his art installation collaboration with adidas, the duo continue their collaboration with a shoe release. Arsham reworks the iconic adidas New York silhouette in his distinct vision. The adidas New York silhouette is a classic with its mesh upper paneled construction, EVA midsole and Dillinger mesh wrapping. These qualities are what made the shoe distinctive in the ’80s, and are still in place as adidas brings the silhouette out from the archives. Arsham keeps these qualities in place with his take on the shoe. Inspired by his Future Relic series, which are white sculptures of familiar and common objects that obsolete in the future world, the sneaker is clean and minimalist. It’s all white with a canvas upper, with frayed edges that are distinctive to Arsham’s relic series. Aside from his name across the tongue of the left shoe and adidas branding on the right, Arsham’s personal stamp is only visible under blacklight, which are words “THE PAST IS PRESENT” printed across the midsole. The sneakers keep Arsham’s aesthetics while still being streetwear ready. These are available at rime locations on July 21st.Screen Shot 2017-07-20 at 6.22.54 PM Screen Shot 2017-07-20 at 6.23.15 PM Screen Shot 2017-07-20 at 6.23.28 PM Screen Shot 2017-07-20 at 6.23.42 PM Screen Shot 2017-07-20 at 6.24.02 PM
