JUST when we thought sneakers couldn’t possibly have more of a moment, and Adidas couldn’t feasibly produce cooler shoes, this happens.

Rick Owens has gone ahead and released another line for Adidas. Yes kids, there is a God and he wants us to have beautifully encapsulated feet.

The shoes in the collaboration-The Tech Master runners- have retained the same futuristic shape that Owens is renowned for and he hasn’t strayed from his simple black, white and grey palette. Knowing when to keep a good thing good, the edgy sole remains but has been freshened up with perforated suede and mesh backing.

The seriously sexy sneakers will be available next month on Sneakerboy and will retail for around $600. Hey, happy feet don’t come cheap.

Not convinced of the power of Rick? Orlando Bloom, Usher, heartthrob of the moment Jared Leto, ASAP Rocky and the fashion man himself, Kanye (AKA Mr Kardashian) have all sported get ups by Rick Owens. Nuff said.

It’s not the only high-fashion partnership that Adidas has under its belt. A range with Raf Simons is dropping sneakers with the sports label (expect tonnes of pop colours and forward thinking shapes) and there’s one with Yohji Yamamoto too. All eyes should also be peeled for an up and coming range with the empress of all things printed, Mary Kantrantzou.

Cool cred and comfy stompers? Adidas, you really are all that.
