On October 7th, the second season of Adidas Originals by Alexander Wang will hit stores, featuring 36 all-new unisex pieces. As revealed in images from the collection, Wang is continuing to deconstruct and reinvent iconic Adidas silhouettes, incessantly questioning Adidas Originals' iconicity and ubiquity with every inventive design, fabric, and fit decision.

For this collection, Alexander Wang has drawn inspiration from both cycling and rave cultures to create a previously unimagined aesthetic. The collection features bright neon tracksuits with subtle textural detailing, see-through mesh tops,  technical, jersey-like long sleeves, wild prints bearing Wang's signature barcode imagery, oversized jacquard track pants with a snap side hem, and of course, a new round of inventive footwear.

Our shoe options here are updated versions of favorite Adidas Originals by Alexander Wang styles, including the AW Run Mid, a streamlined, sock-like runner with a color-blocked sole, the AW Skate Mid, a skate silhouette reimagined in buttery suede atop a sturdy rubber outsole, and the AW Adilette, a subversive take on the iconic Adidas slide that features detailing made of textured sole rubber.

Check out a few selects from the collection below.
