Head Designer of Sneakers at Versace, Salehe Bembury, is steering the Italian luxury fashion label’s footwear choices in a distinctively different direction. In the wake of the Chain Reaction release, Bembury is making waves in the sneaker world with a take Apple Computers’ iconic sneaker.
The design does not differ greatly from the original, making only slight changes. Versace’s version is constructed with modern materials. The midfoot and tongue features the multi-color Medusa head branding. Changes appear in the sole unit. The sole resembles the split cupsole unit we have been seeing on Adidas’s Continental 80.
There is no information on release date or price as of yet. There is also no confirmation on whether or not these quirky kicks are a one-off. Keep an eye out to see whether you’ll be able to cop your own computer kicks for yourself.
