On this CK throw back feature we look back at the incredibly clean work of adidas designer, Richard Ward and his ‘Ease concept’.
The concept features a stretch upper, moulded sockliner, a unique heel cut-away, strobel construction and a full EVA outsole. The lacing is also beautifully designed with moulded ghillys and a lace pull toggle to allow the user to tighten the shoes very quickly.
The whole concept looks exactly like a shoe that’s called ‘ease’, should; super cozy, flexible and light weight. Not to mention, the sketches and renders for the project are outstanding. Check out Richard’s brilliant work, below.
