Raf Simons Stan Smith April 2019 Release Dates

adidas by Raf Simons layers past, present, and future to create a new footwear range inspired by the painting technique of trompe-l’oeil, French for “deceive the eye.”

Advertisment

To begin, the designer curated five styles from the adidas Originals archive: the Micropacer (released 1984-88), the LA Trainer (1979-80), the Torsion Conquest Super (1990-92), the Samba (1962-67), and the Peachtree (1985). These pieces were photographed and 3-D modeled to fit the RS Stan Smith and the RS Adilette, two of the adidas by Raf Simons collaboration’s most essential styles. The resulting footwear retains select details of the vintage shoes on the uppers, including stains, exposed glue, and other general wear – transporting authentic elements of the past into the now.

The collection enables the pollination of styles across product categories, like the transference of technical runners, such as the Micropacer, to tennis shoes, like the Stan Smith. While the Peachtree originally only available in women’s sizes, is now available for men as well, becoming the unisex RS Peach Stan and the RS Peach Adilette.

Look for the RS Stan Smith to release on April 12th, and the RS Adilette to release on May 17th at select retailers and adidas.com.
