Just when you thought your Christmas wish-list couldn’t get any bigger (several sides of A4 is a normal amount, right?), your fave trainer designers come back with a brand new curated line-up that you’re gonna want to instantly get your hands on.
Recruiting East London rapper Kojo Funds to lend his creative vision, the new SWEAR offering sees the pair introduce a modern take on the classic lace-up sneaker. Infusing styles of the exotic, the collection boasts ostrich, python and crocodile in black and red colours, and they are amazing.
“I decided to collaborate with SWEAR because I love fashion and wanted the people to get to know me through my designs,” Kojo says. “My style is flamboyant and unique just like the music I make. I don’t usually wear colourful trainers so all my designs are black with just one splash of red. I used a few exotic materials because when I was young I kept seeing my dad and his friends wear crocodile shoes and I really wanted to see how these luxurious materials would look on modern sneakers – and they came out looking sick! I will love to see the cool kids who have swag wear my designs.”
Available now to grab as that last minute Christmas present (or, ya know, just as a gift for yourself), Kojo joins the likes of will.i.am, Siobhan Bell and Leomie Anderson as a SWEAR curator, with more team-ups due in the new year.
