The FUTUR x Mephisto Barracuda GORE-TEX is Timeless StyleRelease: 4 February 2023
Parisian tastemakers FUTUR have a new collaboration with Mephisto out now. They’ve reworked the ultra-luxe Barracuda walker with buttery cream leather and suede, while retaining its original rugged construction with hiking details and GORE-TEX liners.
Inline editions of the Barracuda are usually made in tonal black or brown leathers – a reliable but somewhat prosaic specification. Here, FUTUR swap in milky shades of cream for a dollop of freshness. And the GORE-TEX maintains that humidity-free freshness, plus it’s a massive flex!
Red hiking laces and tough metal hardware add practical considerations, while also injecting some hot-blooded foot candy. Tasty. Of course, it’s all built on Mephisto’s cushy Air Bag System (no, not the one you’re thinking of) and grippy caoutchouc (aka latex) sole.
This colab is aimed squarely at the epicurean sneakerhead. If you want to experience the finer things in life – especially at ground level – head on over to FUTUR’s webstore now.
