When contextualizing beloved fashion designer Alexander Wang and his work, the subtleties of his design and dedication to a core aesthetic immediately come to mind. Such can be seen in his 2017 collaborative capsule collection with adidas, highlighted by two sneakers featuring Boost technology. Premiered during his Spring/Summer 2017 runway show during NYFW, the Alexander Wang x adidas AW Run features the more technically astounding design. It’s constructed with a dexterous woven sock-like look and and an ankle collar in black. Where it differs from the AW Run Clean is its unique lacing system that tightens at the heel. The Boost midsole ensures comfort, while a gum outsole rounds out the shoe.
