Commonwealth is excited to partner with K-Swiss for a unique take on the Classic 66. The collaboration connects on a shared appreciation of classic-inspired athletic design elevated with a touch of contemporary styling.
The Commonwealth x K-Swiss Classic 66 takes the iconic silhouette and recreates it with a different material for every single panel. From the ground up no two panels are the same which brings a fresh approach to the classic, understated design.
“One our goals with this project was to create an everyday all white sneaker, where the details are’nt just the details, but the product. “ – Omar Quiambao, Design Director, Commonwealth
Set atop a creped rubber outsole, the upper is a collage of white tones of an assemblage of materials. With a mix of suede, leather, synthetic, and textile throughout the entire upper, every piece is a different material resulting in a sophisticated asymmetric design. Metal D-rings along with laces with printed Commonwealth tips and branded sock liners add a bit of symmetry while a lightly padded tongue and leather lining ensures comfort.
“K-Swiss and Commonwealth are a natural fit. Both are inspired by success through perseverance, as evident in this special edition of the Classic 66. The mixture of materials throughout the upper and the subtle differences between left and right come together for a refined, tonal appeal that will make you do a double take.” – Gabriella Gomez, Marketing Director, K-Swiss
The Commonwealth Classic 66 boast custom woven tongue labels and and arrive in special edition boxes with spare laces. It will be available at www.commonwealth-ftgg.com starting April 9th, 2020.
