As part of Valentino’s seasonal collaboration with Japanese power player UNDERCOVER, two new collaborative sneakers including a take on the Italian brand’s Garavani Climbers and Skull-Appliqué sneakers have released. The collaboration initially drew together designers Pierpaolo Piccolo and Jun Takahashi for the Italian brand’s Fall/Winter 2019 runway show, drawing inspiration from Edgar Allan Poe to create various head-turning graphics and illustrations.

The Skull-Appliqué sneakers are offered up in a low top configuration in black, featuring the brand’s usual rock studs on the side, as well as an open-top design. A skull-appliqué toting Takahashi’s normative graphic style, as well as Valentino’s “V” logo, has been placed on the lateral side, with more branding marking the tongue and heel regions. The Garavani Climbers sneakers have been doused in a bold white with various green hits throughout. The two brand’s UFO Edgar Allen Poe illustration patch has been emblazoned on the tongue, with various branding details found throughout. This is met by the silhouettes chunky outsole.
