Eytys' Aphex Is a "Vibrant Upgrade of Millennial Mid-Tops"

Opt for purple tiger stripes or white with python-embossed leather.

Stockholm-based footwear label Eytys isn’t afraid of pushing, and breaking, design boundaries, often drawing from the 1990s to inspire its wild designs. This is precisely the case with its latest sneaker, the Aphex, which has just dropped in two colorways: “Twilight” and “Mamba.”

The “Twilight” pair is dominated by a midnight sky-esque purple hue that’s intersected with tiger stripes, microfiber leather on the toe box, and a purple plastic gem on the rear of the shoe. Screaming ’90s vibes, Eytys describes the shoe as being “A vibrant upgrade of millennial mid-tops,” and they’re not wrong. It receives a similar sole unit to the brand’s Fugu sneaker, seeing a myriad of spikes adorn the entire outsole, midsole, and even around the back of the shoe on an extended heel counter, while elements such as the Aphex badge on the mid-panel further hark back to the ’90s with its retro-futuristic font style.

Much of the same can be said for the “Mamba” iteration, which combines black and white details for a more wearable look. Yet Eytys has also covered the toe area and lower mudguard in python-embossed leather, with more of the same appearing on the collar and heel. Smooth off white suede cuts between white perforated leather panels, rounding out the shoe.

The Aphex can be seen in both colorways above and both can be bought online now or in-store for £250 GBP (approximately $340 USD) — but be quick, as believe it or not, sizes are selling out fast.
