Japanese designer Mikio Sakabe‘s Grounds — formerly known as Giddy — has released its signature Jewelry silhouette in a vivid “Spray Red” colorway. Built to “direct consciousness to the ground,” the Jewelry’s super-sized tooling is undeniably eye-catching, guaranteeing the wearer will garner glances.
Thanks to its all-red hue, knit, socklike upper and bulbous Nike Air-style midsole, the “Spray Red” looks like a compelling caricature of CLOT‘s collaborative VaporMax from 2017. Each of the midsole’s 10 pods is linked together by a TPU bed fused to the upper for structure, and offers a semi-translucent build for technical style. Meanwhile, the knit uppers are kept to a single piece, secured with smooth flat laces and equipped with sizable heel tabs for easy entry and removal. White Grounds text hits grace the insole, and a finishing touch of flair is provided by tonal Grounds branding on the heel tab, both of which are complete with a dropped D to emphasize the look’s feet-first nature.
Touted as “wearable jewelry”, the Grounds Jewelry “Spray Red” is available now via retailers like atmos, and is priced at ¥28,000 JPY (approximately $260 USD).
