adidas by Raf Simons RS Replicant Ozweego “Belgium” ($450)
Crafted in black, yellow, and red, this adidas by Raf Simons RS Replicant Ozweego celebrates Belgium’s Independence Day on July 21st. Cut-out areas replace the original silicone pods from the Ozweego’s initial design with black leather and mesh combining on the upper with molded plastic portions on the midsole.
For an expansive collection of four shoes and various apparel, adidas teams up with Japanese designer Shinsuke Takizawa’s NEIGHBORHOOD. For the footwear options, an NMD_R1 option adds a TPU sheet with serrated details over black Boost midsole and black bumpers, while a new model called the Chop Shop also uses the geometric teeth pattern set over a white Boost midsole. The classic Gazelle gets blacked out with branding on the heel, as does the fourth and final model, the silhouette formally known as the Iniki, which is now known as the I-5923. Apparel options are also blacked out and include a soccer jersey, track pants, three jackets, and a crewneck sweatshirt.
The entire collection will be available tonight at midnight EST online at PackerShoes.com. Also available Saturday, February 24th in-store at both Packer locations. First come, first serve.

Japan’s kolor and adidas combine again on two colorways of the Alphabounce and two renditions of the adiZero Prime Boost. The Alphabounce gets covered in rough-cut mesh over ripstop nylon with their trademark bold colorblocking with hits of bright orange and teal. Hi-res red, black, and grey comprise the other Alphabounce model with rough cuts of suede and mesh. For their collaborative adiZero Prime Boosts, one model gets covered in tonal grey Primeknit on the upper with bursts of yellow above the Boost midsole and red on the outsole and laces. The second version has a paler yellow above the Boost and hits of purple on the outsole and laces to contrast the black upper and midsole.
