Clothing brands teaming up with footwear brands is nothing new. For this special collaboration the folks from 10.DEEP got their hands on the Stan Smith Mid from the adidas catalog. The Stan Smith is most often seen in it’s original low-cut form, however the brand wanted to have a silhouette that can be seen in the familiar clean, single color upper but with the addition of their own special flair to the design.

“The name plays off the rawhide laces and graphical monster mouth sock-liner while taking inspiration from the ongoing series of sticker attack tees from 10.Deep.”
The upper is feature premium suede in a tame iron shade. The adidas three stripes logo is seen in perforations on the outer and used on the inner (medial) side as well to create a large 10.DEEP logo which is revealed when you put the sneakers together. Special 10.DEEP branding is featured on an offset tongue logo along with the adidas tag as well as on the rear. The outside of the sneakers was completed with gum bottoms.

Special graphic insoles contrast greatly with the sneaker’s exterior and finishes off the design in true 10.DEEP fashion. These limited edition adidas were only sold in very select retailers, as well as the 10.DEEP store. What are your thoughts on the “Raw Dogs” a couple of years after their release?
