The definition of sport has gotten somewhat lax in recent years. To be fair, we’d happily slot the eSports movement into a purely entertainment-oriented category, but then why would eSports team Immortals require their very own sneaker?
That’s right, all your favourite keyboard warriors – Febby, Ryoya, Shroomed et al – will be lacing up a shoe specially made by K-Swiss featuring engineered mesh, a dual-density EVA sole and many other elements seen on actual sporting footwear. This is the very first time a footwear company has produced an athletic shoe for a crew of computer crushers and we fear it may not be the last – what a world we live in.
The Immortals x K-Swiss Kompass is set to release in December 2018, stay tuned.
