Hikmet Sugoer’s sneaker line SONRA has collaborated with the shipping company DHL and luxury retailer Budapester for a highly-limited Proto DHL-1 sneaker.

The SONRA Proto DHL-1 is limited to just 300 units and is made in Germany using recycled DHL bags and scraps from a DHL Boeing 757. The collector’s item celebrates DHL’s 50th anniversary and uses numerous heritage motifs throughout the design, such as a toe box made from DHL Express’ red transport bags.

The yellow and red premium suede sneaker also features a DHL logo on the lateral-side heel in black, as well as an aviation-style hang tag that notes the edition number of each pair. Rounding off the sneaker’s design is Budapester’s moniker on the tongue, SONRA branding on the side and a grippy branded outsole finished in gum, which provides a contrasting touch to the crisp white midsole.

A dust bag is made out of the same polypropylene material that is used on the toe box, and the pair is packaged in a special DHL-style shipping box. The SONRA Proto DHL-1 will be sold via raffle on the dedicated Myudapester.com website for €300 EUR (approx. $330 USD) — you have until September 19 to sign up, with a draw commencing on September 20 and pairs to be collected on September 21.

The tag contains the unique production number of the limited edition sneaker. The look is finalised by the sole branded with the designer label. The packaging is also a highlight: While the design of the shoe box resembles a DHL shipping box, the shoe bag as well as the toe cap consists of the DHL “Red Bag”.
