Nick Sisombath‘s ever-growing sneaker label Collegium has announced its first pop-up shop, and coinciding with the special occasion is the drop of its latest Devastator Low colorway, dubbed “Cracked Pillars.”
Adopting a color it calls “Geyser Blue,” the Devastator Low “Cracked Pillars” takes inspiration from the Air Jordan 3, which first sported the iconic “Elephant” design on the toe bumper and heel clip in 1988. The print has gone on to deck Jordan silhouettes across the board, and now becomes the focal point and source of inspiration for the Devastator Low, working the pair’s heel-mid-section wraparound.
As per the brand’s luxurious approach, the sneaker is made in Italy using Italian calfskin leather for the upper, Italian rubber on the outsoles, and comes complete with removable PU insoles and three sets of premium cotton laces, again nodding to Sisombath’s love of the sneaker community (which was heavily discussed in his issue of Sole Mates).
The limited-edition sneakers will only be available at the brand’s pop-up store, which is set to celebrate the Our Collegium community. Inside the pop-up, you’ll find exclusive merchandise, a small exhibition breaking down the exclusive merchandise, giveaways, food and plenty of fun.
Collegium’s Devastator Low “Cracked Pillars” costs $250 USD and will come in sizes EU 35-47. You can find out information about the store below.
In other news, the AJ3 has been decked in a new “Desert Elephant” colorway.
