First look: Raf Simons redesigns the Adidas Stan Smith sneaker
When spring 2016 comes around, the fast and fashionable will be coveting this new Raf Simons-designed collection

In between designing collections for Dior and his eponymous label, Raf Simons has a collaborative relationship with Adidas as well. His collections for the sneaker giant have been snapped up voraciously by fashion fans and sneaker lovers everywhere from LA to Tokyo, and this coming spring 2016, they're about to get another reason to swipe plastic.

Taking on the Stan Smith sneaker, Simons has redesigned the Adidas icon and given it a more contemporary look with the addition of three buckle straps across the bridge of the shoe. Called the Adidas by Raf Simons Stan Smith Strap, it will come in three colourways: forest green or black with white straps, and cobalt blue and red straps.

We love the collection for its fashion forward aesthetics and it's definitely one that we'll be adding to our list of must-haves come spring next year. The sneakers will be available in February 2016, so it will be just in time for the street style set to pick up a pair just before fashion week rolls around.
