Sportshoes have taken over the fashion world in recent years. From casual wear to collector’s pieces, the “sneaker” trend came in and took over the scene by storm. As 2020 rolls in, the trend looks like it’s here to stay and American heritage tennis brand K-Swiss is dutifully stepping up the game. Picking up from a previous collaboration, K-Swiss has teamed up once again with influencer Lil Jupiter to release another premium trainer.
Last year, K-Swiss and the New York influencer released the CR-Terrati to raging success. This time, around they’re enlisting the help of popular Italian luxury retailer LuisaViaRoma to present an even more exclusive pair of sneakers.
The new shoe features K-Swiss and Lil Jupiter’s already-loved silhouette but introduces a brand new and limited “New Year” colourway. The limited-edition shoe is available exclusive on LuisaViaRoma’s Florence store (to coincide with Pitti Immagine Uomo) as well as its online store from January 8, 2020.
“The Lil Jupiter x LuisaViaRoma CR-Terrati shoe builds on K-Swiss’ roots in innovative athletic footwear design with a modern evolution of vintage court trainers and classic ‘90s-inspired style,” K-Swiss writes in a press release.
The new shoe, which boasts a classic black and navy leather paneling with box-breaking iridescent detailing, is sure to be an eye-catcher as well as a staple. “50/100 pairs with an iridescent custom hangtag and arrives in a special edition shoebox with iridescent paper,” the brand denotes.
Following the shoes’ official launch at Pitti, the three-way collaboration will be hosting an exclusive pop-up store and VIP party at Paris Fashion Week, where guests would be able to cop a pair of the very limited run of 700 shoes (for both the pop-up and online units).
