Event Recap: SONRA proto +431 Launch Event with Hikmet Sugoer
Art concept space Die Schöne in Vienna, Austria, provided the backdrop for the recent launch of the uber-exclusive SONRA proto +431 sneaker.
Almost 200 sneakerheads packed into the space, with many queueing from the early hours to be among the first 50 to cop the uber-rare collaboration with sneaker gallery The 6th Floor.
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.
