Rick Owens is a dedicated gym buff but he despises cardio. Now, in an effort to motivate a running habit, the Paris-based designer has designed a line of men’s and women’s running shoes with Adidas.
“I work out like a fiend but I hate, hate, hate cardio. I realized I’m in my fifties now and I need to do something for my heart and lungs. So, I’ve got to start running,” said Owens, on the phone from a beach on the Venice Lido, where he was taking a break from visiting his Italian production partners, Olmar & Mirta. “I thought to myself, ‘What shoes am I going to wear running?’ I can’t wear my big chunky basketball shoes — I’d look like a dinosaur running through the Tuileries.”
