Anonymous asked: Hey Allen what’s your take on the Rick Owens Adidas sneaker just wanted to pick your brain on that….

Answer: Hi, when the Rick Owens by Adidas collaborative sneaker ($690-$790) was announced I was very interested. But my interest waned when the first images of the sneaker were released and even more so once it hit shelves last month. Personally, I’m not a fan of abstract shaped shoes because they usually tend to lean more towards the trendy side and I prefer a more classic sleek shape. And even though, this particular sneaker does feature that classic sleek upper that I like, it gets a bit funky and crazy to me with the oversized chunky outsole. Therefore making it difficult to work these sneakers in to my personal style and quite limiting, in regards to, what it can be worn with. However, this sneaker definitely garners attention and I have seen them on numerous people and celebs such as A$AP Rocky who have easily incorporated it into their looks quite successfully.
