Created by the Belgian fashion legend Raf Simons–described in this recent T Magazine profile as “the most important menswear designer in the world”–we offer these sneakers for your consideration. Both began as adidas sneakers and then Simons had his way with them.
Are you drawn to the monochrome austerity of the R-branded Stan Smith? Do you feel emotions when faced with the beautiful colors and calculated gaudiness of the Ozweego 2?
If you answered yes to either, you may have found your new spring sneaker.

Our Men’s Team’s grueling European journey continues, heading from Milan to show-packed days in Paris. Below are our Men’s Fashion Director’s favorite looks from the first day in the City of Light. “Shorts ruled the Paris runways on day one,” he emailed at odd hours (Paris is nine hours ahead of us here on the West Coast). His other highlight? The bold, abstractly aquatic-themed statement by Mugler.
In case you missed it, catch up on Milan Men’s Fashion Week with runway picks and behind-the-scenes photos by Nordstrom Men’s Fashion Director Tommy Fazio.
