Editor’s Notes: Late last month luxury sneaker brand Koio launched its first-ever runner, the Avalanche. Now the label is already back with a new colorway of the chunky silhouette.

Here we find the Avalanche done up in blue and yellow, paying homage to the colors of the Swedish flag.

“We loved the way the yellow and blue looked in those different contexts and decided we wanted to make a sneaker that would equally complement and give an edge to your style, through that interplay of color and materials,” says Johannes Quodt, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Koio. “Also, now that we’re going into fall, the shoe reminds us of endless summer days in the Nordics.”

Evoking a retro aesthetic, the Avalanche remains very much on-trend, in larger part thanks to its chunky sole. If you're into the design, you can purchase the new blue and yellow colorway today through Koio.
