Feb. 27, 2020: This past All-Star Weekend, Adidas, James Harden and Daniel Patrick celebrated the latest release in their ongoing three-party collaboration between the Houston Rockets player and two fashion industry leaders. The Harden Vol. 4 x Daniel Patrick sneaker — a previously released, lightweight silhouette — takes on a new, bold color scheme in its latest iteration. “Daniel Patrick has been setting trends with his use of bold looks and bright colors, so partnering with Daniel was the perfect way to highlight the design of the Vol. 4 and bring sport, fashion and culture together,” Harden said in a press release, referring to the black-and-white shoe, accented with orange laces and orange at the back of the foot. The style retails for $150 on Adidas.com and DanielPatrick.us

Feb. 26, 2020: Koio has partnered with Los Angeles-based sculptor Bradley Duncan. The sneaker label and artist have come up with a pared-down kick made with natural leather and a clear sole, with wavy detail at the lacing inspired by Duncan’s Waveform sculpture. “I approached the shoe design process the same way I start most of our studio projects, with a vision,” Duncan said of the collab. “The clear rubber sole is my favorite element of the sneaker. It reveals the construction of the shoe and lets light pass through.” The shoes launch on Thursday, Feb. 27, with an event at Koio’s store in the hip Venice neighborhood of L.A.

Feb. 24, 2020: Designer Ruthie Davis is teaming up with Disney once again, this time for a series of looks inspired by the upcoming “Mulan” film, opening on March 27. The shoes are based on filmmaker Niki Caro’s depiction of the film’s namesake character, a female warrior. “Mulan is my personal favorite Disney character because she is a warrior heroine with a strong sense of honor and spirit,” said Davis. “I am inspired by her courage, perseverance and drive. She is a force to be reckoned with and this collection reflects that.” The series includes platform high-tops and stilettos, with select styles emblazoned with the word “warrior.” While designing the collection, Davis had input from a group of fashion and design students from the University of Delaware, whom she mentored. The shoes will be available on March 3, exclusively on Ruthiedavis.com and at the Curated by Christian Siriano store in New York. Retail prices range from $398 to $898.

Included in the offering is the unisex Bapesta sneaker, celebrating its 20th anniversary this year and retailing for $350. To underscore the connection between the brands and the fashion capitals they call home, actor and musician Quincy Brown was photographed wearing the collection in the trendy Williamsburg, Brooklyn, neighborhood, while model and songwriter Köki brought the collection to life in the Ebisu district of Shibuya in Tokyo. The collection will be available from Feb. 22 on Coach.com and Bape.com, and at select Coach and Bape store locations.

In addition, the Teva x Anna Sui collection includes the cozy Ember Mid style — essentially a sneaker-boot hybrid in a plush, quilted fabric. To set itself apart, this time the collaboration also joined with another iconic brand, Liberty London, to apply a “Botanist’s Diary” print across the fall ’20 pieces. The current Teva x Anna Sui collection is available on Teva.com, with the new floral iterations arriving next fall.

The lone shoe is a new-look K-Swiss Classic 2000, which the brand said is a nod to its history but “reimagined to pay homage to the Chicano style.” For the apparel, Willy Chavarria employed neon hues to deliver the look of an “original highbrow tennis classic with a ’90s Chicano rave vibe.” The line ranges in price from $120 to $250 and is available via Sneakersnstuff, Dover Street Market Ginza, LN-CC, Luisaviaroma, Machus and KSwiss.com.
