The Rick Owens Adidas Tech Runner Sneakers is not new in the leading designer shoe game as it precedes into Fall Winter 2014, this is the second generation collaboration with German sportswear label Adidas and has seen an extensive start at the beginning of the season. First introduced at the Rick Owens Spring Summer 2014 menswear runway and was later released for commercial sale just eight months ago was an immediate success in the market place.

Due to sheer popularity in Spring Summer 2014, the Tech Runner concept sneakers are back with a revolutionary twist. Much to my personal liking, the latest generation Tech Runners kicks off with extreme futuristic character and stays in the top of my footwear preference must-have sneakers for Fall Winter 2014. The innovative design is ahead of time and stays relevant for many seasons to come as the ideal iconic masterpiece.

Highly conceptual in execution, the new silhouette rumored to draw inspiration from the B-2 Stealth Bomber. Major changes over the predecessor includes a leather saddle, contrast heel collar, tonal neoprene vamp and a distinguish dramatize angular oversize serrated-tread EVA (Ethylene-vinyl acetatesole) mid-sole that has been shaped to form masculine body curves like a Lamborghini.

Rick Owens Olive Wild Alligator Leather Hun Jacket

23rd October 2013
The leather jacket is an iconic piece of clothing, it is the quintessential piece that belongs to every men’s wardrobe. American designer Rick Owens has recently release two unique alligator leather jackets, they are very exclusive and are priced premium at $53,925 – don’t forget that you have to add custom tax and duties if you live outside of America. The Rick Owens Olive Wild Alligator Leather Hun Jacket features a signature stand collar, angled zip closure at the top and welt pockets at the front.
Luxury designer leather jackets today are all based, more or less, on the biker-rocker style. But the Rick Owens isn’t quite like that, the design explores the consequences of scientific innovations, it has a structured silhouettes designed based on rationalizing the alternative possible future, a pure imaginative speculation design. The jacket has a tailored fitted that does not create excess bulk, the thick leather jacket is constructed of untreated and unmodified game alligator which sits closer to the body with kangaroo leather trims, resulting in natural imperfections that is entirely unique to it’s characteristics, in other words it is as raw as it gets.

About Maintaining Alligator Leather

Alligator leather should be stored in a cool dry place when not in use. Do not fold alligator products in unusual positions. If the leather goods become wet, first gently wipe off excess water with a soft dry absorbent cloth, then dry them naturally and slowly without direct sunlight or auxiliary heat. Make sure they have an abundance of clean dry air passing over and under them. A small fan helps. Turn them over every few hours to facilitate drying. After they are thoroughly dry, apply leather conditioner to all exposed leather as directed below. Apply conditioner again in a day or two and your alligator leather should remain serviceable. Once the leather cracks, it is too late.

Avoid excessive heat, water and direct sunlight

Never use household chemicals, alcohol, or other solvents to clean your alligator leather. Remember that the burnished classic finish on alligator is very fragile in reference to solvents, cleaners and conditioners commonly used for some other types of leather. These harsh conditioning products may destroy the finish on alligator.
Alligator leather is one of the most beautiful and durable of the luxurious exotic leathers and with a little care should last several years. Without proper care, the flexibility durability and overall appearance of alligator leather will diminish drastically with time.
Always test anything that you apply to the leather on a hidden or inconspicuous surface before treating the entire product . Pay particular attention to the color, as some conditioners tend to make finishes less glossy or darker in color. Apply the conditioner following the manufacturers instructions. You would want you to use and enjoy our products for several years and the above information should help.
