Exercising the motto of ‘less is more’, asphaltgold don’t unnecessarily meddle with the CL Nylon’s timeless material and colour palette. Retaining the distinct neutral suede and white nylon upper, subtle tricolour detailing on the shoelaces and tongue label references the dish’s Italian origins. On the tongues, pizza slices cleverly replicate the Reebok Classic logo, tying in to the insole’s checked tablecloth pattern synonymous with pizza restaurants.
Custom lace jewels feature asphaltgold’s alleycat logo on one shoe, and ‘Pizza’ in Reebok’s font on the other. And for a final collaborative touch, the sneakers come packaged in a custom ‘pizza box’.
Releasing in-store and online at asphaltgold on July 27.
