This is surely not how we expected this design collaboration to pan out. 

Earlier in the month, we were excited to learn that Rick Owens had plans to collaborate on a pair of running shoes with Adidas again.

Last time the two companies had a tango earlier this year, the unlikely duo paired up to release a collection for Fall/Winter 2013 that consisted of five models in three colorways. 

This time around, we were expecting to count out any thought of color, and open our minds to a mix of black, white, grey, pearl, and bone…but this design wasn’t what we were expecting. 

With Mens Fashion Week in Paris in full-swing, the press got the first look at the sneaker that boasts a back to the future-esque design; it’s practically a sporty sneaker heel. 

The Adidas by Rick Owens designs, which are so far planned for a single season, will retail for $400 to $500. They hit stores in December and will be sold at Rick Owens stores and premium specialty fashion retailers.
