Editor’s Notes: Streetwear imprint, Akomplice, aligns with FILA on the creation of an exclusive collaborative sneaker, just in time for the warmer months ahead. Presented as part of a larger capsule, the collaboration’s footwear component draws cues from the Yucatán.
Each section of the shoe is inspired by a part of the region’s ecosystem — light green on the insole, tongue tag and heel, representing jungle foliage and the Caribbean Sea, purple on the outsole, branding and lining, for ocean coral and the fruit produced by the tropical climate, while a light brown upper symbolizes the sand and limestone on which the region is founded.
With quantities expected to be limited, each pair will come in a color-matched box that bears the Akomplice maxim, “3rd Eye Open / Made In Love.”
There’s also a gold Nike Air Max Jewell releasing later this month.
