Our latest collaboration with K-Swiss turns the ubiquitous white sneaker into a conversation piece. The Commonwealth x K-Swiss Classic 66 takes the iconic silhouette and recreates it with a different material for every single panel. From the ground up, no two panels are the same. A fresh approach to the classic, understated design.
“One of our goals with this project was to create an everyday all white sneaker, where the details aren’t just the details, but the product,” says our Design Director, Omar Quiambao.
The collaboration between Commonwealth and K-Swiss connects on a shared appreciation of classic-inspired athletic design elevated with a touch of contemporary styling.
“K-Swiss and Commonwealth are a natural fit. Both are inspired by success through perseverance, as evident in this special edition of the Classic 66,” Gabriella Gomez, Marketing Director of K-Swiss, says. “The mixture of materials throughout the upper and the subtle differences between left and right come together for a refined, tonal appeal that will make you do a double take.”
Set atop a creped rubber outsole, the upper is a collage of white tones of an assemblage of materials. With a mix of suede, leather, synthetic, and textile throughout the entire upper, every piece is a different material resulting in a sophisticated asymmetric design. Metal D-rings along with laces with printed Commonwealth tips and branded sockliners add a bit of symmetry while a lightly padded tongue and leather lining ensures comfort.
The Commonwealth x K-Swiss Classic 66 boasts custom woven tongue labels and will arrive in a special edition box.
