SONRA founder Hikmet Sugoer was on-hand to sign the first copped pairs, with designer Florian Kampelmühler also present to discuss the sneaker’s concept and design process.

The proto +431 sneaker is inspired by Vienna's artistic and cultural heritage, with everything from Viennese melange to punch doughnuts to the cheese kransky and beyond all contributing to the sneaker’s design. 

Constructed with the finest calfskin suede leather, all 200 pairs were handmade in Germany.
