adidas Originals and MRBAILEY Introduce the OZMORPHIS Silhouette


Having first unveiled their ultra-exclusive OZLUCENT sneaker last year, adidas Originals and MRBAILEY return to present the latest stage in their ongoing exploration of natural forms.

Applying the extensive design and research approach that has underpinned his career, the collaborative creative endeavor has seen MRBAILEY undertake a four step journey of metamorphosis – adroitly exploring the connection between humans and the natural world, all-the-while viscerally reimagining adidas Originals’ OZWORLD DNA. Referencing the lifecycle of the aurelia moon jellyfish, the design process takes inherent cues from the marine animal’s form during its juvenile ephyra period.

For its second stage, MRBAILEY transforms the jellyfish-inspired OZLUCENT sneaker into the OZMORPHIS silhouette – dynamically translating the innate engineering of the natural world into a shoe that boasts elevated comfort and a uniquely contemporary aesthetic language. Sat atop an adiPRENE midsole, the silhouette’s upper is enveloped in a cocoon-like form – crafted using a TPU structure that encases an inner neoprene sox – appearing as if the jellyfish has fully taken over. The toe box, meanwhile, directly references the lappets used for aquatic movement by the water-borne creature.

Representing the latest iteration of MRBAILEY’s jelly-fish inspired OZWORLD metamorphosis, the OZMORPHIS sneaker launches globally on February 9th, and is available via Confirmed and select retailers.
