By now you’re no doubt used to seeing Raf Simons’s deconstructed Ozweego Replicant, the high fashion sneaker version of the Croc. Just in time for 4th of July, adidas has released a new colorway in white with a “Cobalt Blue” heel cap and a “Signal Red” rubber outsole. It’s reflective of Simons’s new love of Americana, which he’s so deeply mined in only a few seasons at Calvin Klein, referencing cowboys and slasher movies, and releasing a whole line printed with the work of Andy Warhol. The sneakers also have a lilac upper — we’re not sure as to how that fits into the great American flag color palette — and come with socks mirroring their cutaway, geometric design. They are available on June 28 at 50 stores, just in time for you to ruin them entirely on July 4th.
