Designed in collaboration with Areté Create — Myles O’Meally’s product design consultancy — the Cylon 21 combines elements from Raf’s iconic adidas Ozweego collaboration with a hyper-futuristic aesthetic. The sneaker moves away from the chunky “dad” look towards a more streamlined vibe. Notable design details include the signature bubbles on the sides of the shoe, as well as the removable, metallic TPU heel cover, which gives the Cylon 21 its distinct, distant-galaxy feel.
