Are these worthy of your wardrobe? I’m impressed. Ransom by Adidas Originals got together with Stussy to make the Plain CS Stussy shoes in royal blue, black, and tan. They don’t have a lot of bells and whistles, but that’s all right by me after seeing those odd backwards flipped-around shoes from Kazuki Kuraishi. These are much more pleasing to the eye, aren’t they?

Stussy and Ransom by Adidas Originals impress with clean design and some small points of interest along the sole, insole, outsole, and upper. Let’s take a tour: first off, the three suede uppers have a heavily perforated effect for both aesthetics and function. If you suffer from overwarm feet, perhaps these could be a practical buy for you (as opposed to an impulsive buy based purely on good looks!). The next feature of note is a crepe outsole, which looks amazing next to the richly-colored suede. There’s something about the suede contrast and textured crepe that piques my interest… and it seems to have grabbed Adidas Originals’ fans attention as well. Hypebeast has the release date marked as March 26th at Adidas Originals Japan stores, Stussy stores, and No6/No74 shops. You buying? [via hypebeast]
