When we spoke with key POD designer Lena Groneck, she said that the ethos behind the sneaker was about finding beauty in the most unusual combinations. That mindset obviously informs the ‘podular’ design, but it also extends to colourways.
So far, the model’s make-ups have been anchored in one colour and accented by an oddly complementary pop. Sure, some pairs have been baptised with their inaugural ‘Triple White’ or ‘Black/White’, but the lion’s share have surprised by pairing common shades with hits of ‘Shock Yellow’ or cerulean blue. This number continues to impress with a left-of-field combo, contrasting a bevy of grey mesh with measured doses of ‘Solar Orange’ on the heel counter and lace supports. It might be a small touch, but it makes all the difference.
