Canadian outdoor label, RANSOM, has been working with adidas Originals for two seasons now and the collaborative range continues to be well-received by all, especially those riding the great outdoor style of 2009.
Rooted in the great North American wilderness with a heritage for wooded wanderlust, RANSOM’s Spring/Summer 2010 collection continues to urge its wearers to venture outsider and explore. Aside from the lumberjack-chic Creek with a boat shoe touch, another style to drop from the collection is the Valley Lo. The Valley Lo is more urban in aesthetics with a plimsoll inspired shape, but an slightly roomier volume keeps these brightly colored numbers more masculine than your average sleek, low-tops such as Keds or Chuck Taylors. The outdoor influence comes in a technical package on the Valley Lo with rip-stop nylon upper that keep these kicks durable through treks and hikes. Aside from the classic black, white and navy, the Valley Lo also comes in happier spring shades such as blue, orange and purple. For those seeking a tough pair of low-tops for the summer, these are set to hit stores soon at select RANSOM by adidas Originals retailers.via: HB
