What have I been saying for months? Innovation in footwear isn’t necessarily the shape, but rather the materials. Andrea Pompilio and Onitsuka Tiger look to the Fall with the a three-part footwear range. Initially previewed during the collaborative brand’s runway showing this past spring, this series presents itself in a broad range of textures and materials perfect for the forthcoming seasonal change. Rough, chunky and rich are just a few words that strike me.
At a quick glance you might think that there are three different models, but the trio linked below consists only of the retro Colorado Eight-Five silhouette with varying materials and colors. And that’s fine: options are good. Each pair is currently available at select retailers, including Premier (linked through on HypeBeast), for $170 USD each. My favorite without seeing them in person is the one pictured above. That splash of orange is genius.
