Moncler Gussy Up HOKA ONE ONE's Mafate Speed 2 Trail RunnerRelease: 1 December 2021
Moncler have brought their signature alpine flair to HOKA ONE ONE's Mafate Speed 2, an under-the-radar trail running shoe. Though Moncler may be best known in the world of street culture for its bubble jackets – high-gloss, four-figure coats beloved by rappers and influencers alike – it's also got a rich collaborative footwear history with brands like Converse, ASICS, Fragment Design and KITH. Between that and being an alpine-geared brand, it seems only right that they'd take a crack at a trail runner!
White mesh uppers boast synthetic silver overlays, and centre most of the Moncler detailing around the tongue where there's a full-on Moncler badge plus the brand's signature red, blue and white stripes on the laces. Moving to the lower half, HOKA ONE ONE's recognisable thick foam midsole is christened with repeating Moncler text hits and even a red, white and blue striped graphic towards the forefoot. Toothed Vibram outsoles complete the look with high-performance traction.
The Moncler x HOKA ONE ONE Mafate Speed 2 is currently available at select Moncler boutiques. It'll see a full-on release via the HOKA ONE ONE webstore come December 1.
