Take a Closer Look at the A-COLD-WALL* x Converse Geo Forma Boot in “Volt” and “Lily White”

After speaking with Converse Footwear-Energy Design Director Matt Sleep on the A-COLD-WALL* x Converse Geo Forma boot, we now take a closer look at the first two colorways launching for the futuristic silhouette.Intended to be an avant-garde take on the classic Chuck Taylor All-Star, the boot sees technical uppers matched with a chunky geometric outsole. Available in Volt or Lily White, the outsole sees speckled rubber with angular color placement, giving the boot depth that’s often found in the bodywork of exotic cars. The outsole is finished with an aggressive arch and an exaggerated heel. For a more snug fit, the Geo Forma Boot employs a mixed neoprene upper for stretch and replaces laces with a front zipper. Branding can be found all over the boot at both the lateral and medial sides, heel, and lateral side of the toe. The A-COLD-WALL* x Converse Geo Forma Boot is set for a retail price of $150 USD and will be available for purchase via A-COLD-WALL* on December 17, followed by Converse and select retailers globally on December 20.In other footwear news, Salomon releases new colorways to its XT-6 GORE-TEX (GTX).

The exhibition and its related programs are designed to showcase his methodological principles — known as Abloh’s Codes — which are meant to be applicable to any medium, product or space. The Codes made his work, and particularly The Ten with Nike, both easily identifiable and translatable.”Helping mark Design Miami/ this year, the exhibition will serve to express the Codes that guide and shape the future of Nike’s partnership with VA Securities. Informing the ongoing collaborative output established by Architecture, a platform Virgil co-created with Nike. Helmed by Mahfuz and Chloe Sultan, Architecture’s future project will reflect on and reinterpret The Codes.According to Nike, “the goal is to further Abloh’s legacy beyond an individual practice and to establish a framework for an enduring open-source institution and invitation to design anchored in inspirational storytelling.””Virgil Abloh: The Codes c/o Architecture” features a major focus on unreleased and previously unseen Off-White™ x Nike footwear.

The SOUTH2 WEST8 x On Cloudaway Is Designed for Fishing and Outdoor Expeditions

SOUTH2 WEST8 is pushing its collaborative sneaker portfolio further this December as it has just announced a brand new team-up with On Running that features the latter’s Cloudaway model. This is the latest installment in its footwear journey and serves as follows up to its Reebok Zig Kinetica II Edge team-up that was released earlier this month as well as its WAIMEA H2 interpretation with KEEN.When SOUTH2 WEST8 was cooking up this offering, its intention was to formulate a sneaker that was primed for fishing activities and outdoor adventures. The Japanese streetwear label’s signature DNA is prominent across the uppers as its signature green graphics are printed across the toe boxes, along the side panels and on top of the tongue stripes. A solid black hue takes over a majority of the real estate here as it coats over the mesh tongues, lateral and medial walls and the mudguards, the latter of which arrives in vegan suede and comes held down by exposed stitchings. Stuffed inside the midsole piece is On CloudTec® technology which supplies wearers with plushy cushioning.Lifestyle images of the collaborative pair can be viewed in the gallery above and you can expect these to drop on December 3 via On.For more footwear news, peep a look at the On Cloudaway “Smoky Quartz” colorway.
