In celebration of K-Swiss’ 50th anniversary, the heritage brand is collaborating with four Japanese designers to release exclusive iterations of the Classic ‘66 sneaker. The first partnership is with Takeo Kikuchi, who envisioned a white sneaker set atop an off-white sole. The second is with Journal Standard, who revamped the upper with fluffed up rough suede in a deep navy. The next is with SHIPS, and the imprint created a “Dress Blue” leather sneaker. Lastly, the collaboration with Urban Research Doors sees a synthetic suede base set atop a blacked-out sole. Check out the full collection above and learn more about prices and availability here.
