From the strange bedfellows files: Musician Pharrell Williams has enlisted Zaha Hadid as a partner to rejuvenate a rather staid athletic shoe.
The rubber toecap of Adidas’ Superstar design has been remodeled by Hadid. The white version of the shoe features a fan-like 3D motif, while a raised pattern of dots and dashes decorates the black kicks.
While AN doesn’t pretend to dictate high fashion, we can definitely see pairing up Zaha’s sneakers with Renzo Piano’s Whitney handbag for an au courant look. The shoes are slated to be in stores August 7.
Hadid and other notable architects are no strangers to the world of footwear design. Take a look at our past of architect-designed shoes here.
