For those not in the high-fashion loop, it would be difficult to parse the impact that designer Raf Simons has had on the menswear and footwear industries in the past decade. Influenced by music, art, and performance, Simons has communicated his love for rebellious youth and tradition not only in his clothing designs, but footwear as well. Initially releasing his first models in the fall season of 2007, Simons has done anything but take his individualistic approach to footwear and transcend it into some of the most recognizable sneakers to date.
In addition to his own line, Raf Simons linked up with adidas in the Fall of 2013 to provide a collection of cool, vibrant, lifestyle runners, which further legitimized him as a footwear genius. In honor of Dior and I releasing today, a documentary that follows the Belgian designer as Dior's creative director, we ranked The 10 Best Raf Simons Sneakers of all Time.
