GCDS and Mizuno come together in an exciting collaboration that pays homage to the purity of shape and colour.
Taken from the 1997 running archives, the Wave Prophecy represents a watershed moment in Mizuno’s race to technical achievement, as it improved upon the already revolutionary Wave technology. GCDS chose the Infinity Wave because the beauty and harmony of its lines are in perfect balance with its performance-driven successes. In its newest incarnation, Mizuno has put its R&D department in service of beauty, helping GCDS create a white monogrammed jacquard engineered mesh for the upper, perfectly complimenting the fuchsia of the heel, rendered in a combination of suede and mirrored pebax. The logo is in tonal embossed leather and it sports lasered serial numbers.
Giuliano Calza, founder and creative director of GCDS, has said of the collaboration:
“I got my very first pair of Mizuno sneakers while I was visiting Japan , whilst studying abroad in China, It was love at first sight. The cherry represents blossom season in Japan which is when the shoe will be launched. Utilizing GCDS’s staple color fuchsia, I decided to give it a metallic appeal because it reminded me of Japan’s aesthetic and futuristic charm, as the technology of the Wave Prophecy was when it was first launched.”
This limited release sneaker will be available on the GCDS online store, and GCDS flagship stores from April 15th at 12 pm GMT. This collaboration shoe will also be available in selected retailers across the globe from April 30th.
