Rainbow by name, not colorway, the Mephisto shoes are given a Patta reworking in either “Red” or “White” palettes — both of which are handcrafted in Europe using a smooth mammoth grain leather for the uppers. The former style sports a natural rubber sole unit, presenting a dark brown base that offsets the moody blood-red body, while the “White” iteration is finished with a translucent sole unit, it too perfectly dressing the sneaker with its clean and crisp piece.
Signature stitching on the side panel signifies this pair as a Mephisto Rainbow, while dual branding, a padded tongue and heel, and D-ring lacing complete the upper. As for the sole unit, you’ll find SOFT-AIR and AIR-RELAX technology ensuring a comfortable fit all day long.
Patta and Mephisto complete the special-edition pairs with a complementary dust bag, again detailing the collaborative effort. Take a look at the pairs above, and pick them up from Patta’s website and app on April 14 at 1 p.m. CEST/12 p.m. BST/6 a.m EST, or later on at Patta Amsterdam, Patta London and Patta Milano on April 18.
