Following its “Back to Hogwarts” collection, K-Swiss has returned to unveil an unexpected collaboration with collectible card game, Magic: The Gathering. For the team-up, the iconic vanguard of strategy card games put together a reimagination of the Gstaad ’86 silhouette.
Referencing its 25 years of character heritage, the Magic: The Gathering x K-Swiss Gstaad ’86 is inspired by one of the most beloved characters, Jace Beleren. Elements of the popular Planeswalker have been imbued onto the premium leather overlays underlays that make up the upper. The master of mental magic’s costume design informs the glow-in-the-dark details, leather collar lining, printed designs, rubber outsole and extra laces. Other decorative points include the metal lace clip-ons and a debossed Magic: The Gathering logo at the tongue and a sublimated sockliner of Jace’s artwork. Limited to just 300 pairs, each shoe comes in a special-edition box and accompanying themed tissue paper packing.
Priced at $100 USD, the Magic: The Gathering x K-Swiss Gstaad ’86 “Jace Beleren” will be available exclusively at Hasbro Pulse.
