Editor’s Notes: 24 Kilates and SONRA have come together for a new collaboration on the Proto. The project is a nod to one of the world’s most expensive spices by weight, Saffron, first cultivated around the Mediterranean area, before making its way to Europe and Asia.
The Proto is handmade in Germany from rich vegetable-tanned leather, also welcoming suede on the vamp, representative of the Saffron flower. Burgundy and orange-colored stripes further liven up the sneaker across the upper and around the heel, while 3M reflective detailing highlights the colorway.
The 24 Kilates x SONRA Proto “Saffron,” limited to 200 pairs worldwide, arrives at 24 Kilates and SONRA stores July 21. Online availability begins the following day.
