After teasing the collaboration in its Spring/Summer 2020 lookbook, Commonwealth has now given an official look at its upcoming release with K-Swiss. Taking on the Classic 66 silhouette, the brand has used a variety of different textures and materials across the sneaker.
The silhouette features different materials on every panel, with no two panels constructed from the same textile. This includes a mix of suede, leather, synthetic and textile across the upper, all of which come in a variety of white and off-white tones. Elsewhere, the sneaker features creped rubber outsole, metal D-rings, branded sockliners and printed Commonwealth lace tips.
Speaking about the collaboration, Commonwealth Design Director Omar Quaimbao explained that, “One of our goals with this project was to create an every day all white sneaker, where the details aren’t just the details, but the product.”
The asymmetric Commonwealth x K-Swiss Classic 66 sneaker will release via the Commonwealth web store on April 9.
