Just when New York Fashion Week was starting to get a little too polished, Jeremy Scott sent out models in extreme takes on elevated athletic footwear. But these weren’t just tongue-in-cheek sportif hijinks. Scott is a longtime collaborator with Adidas, after all. The designer dreamed up a heeled take on the Adidas three-stripe trainer, complete with matching shin and knee pads. For this eccentric designer, such Sochi-ready styles, which were paired with varsity knits, actually had a toned-down quality. And with the return of the all–white sneaker scoring winning style points from the runway to the street-style show outside, the timing couldn’t have been more spot on.
