The Japanese branch of Ellesse linked up with Hombre Niño designer and avid skater YOPPI for a sneaker collaboration. Ellesse is launching one Hombre Niño edition of each of its Assist sneakers. These sneakers feature premium leather, monochrome color-blocking and touches of blue.
The design is a nod to the original sneaker design which was out back in 1984 when Yoppi was 17. In-house colorways include tonal white and a dope blend of primary colors, revitalizing the classic with a modern shape.
We really like the bold branding on the side panels of the kicks. I would love to do a photo session on the bike with these. That would be fresh!
The Hombre Niño, Ellesse sneakers collection can be found on Goldwin.co.jp
We’re loving all the kicks in this collection. Hopefully these sneakers get released in the states this summer!
