Utilizing the Micropacer, L.A. Trainer, Torsion Conquest Super, the Samba and the Peachtree, each silhouette was photographed and 3D modeled around the RS Stan Smith and Adilette. The final product yields a vintage appearance with intentional stains and glue marks with wear marks throughout.

The RS Stan Smith is set to release on April 12th and the RS Adilette on April 17th online at adidas, as well as select Three Stripes retailers.
