Los Angeles-based Bristol Studio is known for taking sportswear and casual apparel and repurposing the attire into high-end fashion garments. The Shoe Surgeon has become one of the premier sneaker customization personalities in footwear culture and adidas has made massive advancements in footwear technology and design raising the trefoil gang’s stock within the culture. Now, all three brands have come together for a collaborative effort that will make its debut on the runway during the upcoming New York Fashion Week. With that said, RapFest introduces to you, the Bristol Studio x The Shoe Surgeon x adidas Crazy BYW Collection.
The adidas Crazy BYW [BOOST You Wear] was originally introduced earlier this year as a part of the revamping of the adidas Basketball division but we’ve yet to see the silhouette laced up in a professional basketball environment. The sneaker itself takes on the aesthetic of adidas Basketball sneakers from the ’90s, especially in regards to Kobe Bryant’s adidas Basketball Collection in combination with adidas’ patented and highly popularized BOOST cushioning technology.
The collaborative involvement of The Shoe Surgeon for this particular collection is one that is unexpected, especially with the customizer is known for applying high-quality animal skins to some of our favorite sneaker silhouettes. This time around, Dominic Chambrone, better known as The Shoe Surgeon is teaming up with the Luke Tadashi-led fashion brand, Bristol Studio, for a deconstructed collection of the adidas Crazy BTW.
The collection consists of aluminum paneling, cardboard constructed quarter panels, clear plastic wrapped mudguards, tumbled leather and patented leather toeboxes, distressed constructed renderings of the performance sneaker, a wide set lacing system, BOOST-infused midsoles and rubber outsoles in earth-tone hues.
The Bristol Studio x The Shoe Surgeon x adidas Crazy BYW is set to make its debut at the Bristol Studio x New York Fashion Week: Men’s Presentation.
