Fake London Genius have recently released a series of K-swiss collaborations with three interesting themes. It is no surprise when you take the punk inspired line from Fake London and intertwine it with the classic lines from K-swiss and end up with a vary special collaboration. Included in this pack are the (from left to right) the Medal, the Punk, and the Dog. To my recollection, I haven’t many full production lace covers on shoes let alone those of intriguing design as seen on the Dog and the Medal. The punk itself isn’t devoid of any interesting characteristics. With many influences from its aforementioned name, K-swiss’ trademark stripes are represented by zippers (think leather jacket), leather bracelets are attached to the heel tab, and bits of suede are sewn on the shoe as well. Definitely an interesting pack to say the least from K-swiss and Fake London Genius! Check em out at We Sold Out
