Just off the buzzing path of Canal Street, New York City’s most infamous thoroughfare for knockoff watches, lies ‘Opening Ceremony’, one the cities finest, and most exclusive boutique shops. And once again, “OC” has teamed up with adidas Originals, for their 3rd shoe collaboration. This round the two retail outfits were heavily influenced by traditional rock climbing footwear. The line is comprised of two entirely, but equally enticing looks – the first being the, OC ENFR Rock. Taking a play out of the original adidas Enforcer hoop shoe, this high-top features side cut outs, a removable neoprene sock, and lace hooks to boot, giving it a rugged yet relaxed look. In the two-hole, is the ‘OC Rock Mocc’, that dons a much more classic climbing silhouette. With a drawstring lace construction and nearly seamless nubuck upper, this low cut moccasin can be proudly rocked without having any understanding for meaning of, “on belay.” Check out the pics after the jump and see if you dig it. Releases scheduled for July, so be sure to get over to Opening Ceremony to cop.
Release Date: July 2013
