To celebrate his now iconic minimalist sneaker’s 10th anniversary, in January 2014 one of our favorite designers and tastemakers around; Erik Schedin teamed up with Comme des Garçons Shirt to re-release the white leather model with unique added graphics. Another version with the colorway option inverted was released soon afterwards using black as the primary color of choice for the low-rise model with white graphics. And now the Swede and Comme des Garçons Shirt return and continue their great collaboration for a third rendition, this time in color: having created the sneaker in a sharp shade of blue and a beautiful deep green with the identical black graphics as its predecessors. We love these beautiful new styles of one of the cleanest sneaker around!
Color or no color, Erik Schedin’s iconic model remains a minimalist shoe lovers staple around the globe.
We have been following Erik Schedin since the beginning of Another Something & Company. The Swedish designer is most known for his iconic minimalist sneaker, of which the first sketch was made in his final year at Beckmans College of Design in Stockholm in 2004. Last year he, together with Comme des Garçons Shirt, celebrated the 10 year existence of his sneaker, which since then has been continued. But, there was much more we loved in these last years, in which Erik ran one of the most exciting and elegant minimal webstores to be found on the internet. He, for instance collaborated with Tegnässkidan AB to re-create their classical ski model Rajd and Schedin was the first one to reintroduce the first ever designed Gore-Tex boot, the Danner Light to the European market. Recently he has shifted focus back to where it all began: his – ahead of the curve – minimal sneaker.
