First time Raf Simons designed a silhouette like this was in his collaboration with Asics for the FW 09 Season Collection. The model consisted in a running shoe with fluor colors and a removable neoprene glove.
In FW 12, Raf maintained the same silhouette but its colors were more sober and the sneakers featured a shiny copper base. In addition, he released the same model in a boot format.
In SS 13, Asics and Raf took different paths. However, the silhoutte was maintained. In this collection the Holo Runner model was born, in a very similar aesthetic, but constructed by superposed panels from different patterns and materials.
For FW 13, Raf joins forces with adidas, in a collaboration that still lasts. It was the first Ozweego´s appearance as well as other lesser-known models were created, like the Terrex or the Response.
In SS 14, the Response Trail was born, as an evolution of the previous model, with an adjustment device and very spatial colorways.
Last but not least, for FW 15, an interesting silhouette in terms of design was released: the Response Trail Robot, featuring a very futuristic look
