Though it may use a simple black and white color scheme and familiar double-stacked midsoles plus doubled up Swooshes — all in line with one of the Vaporwaffle’s release colors — this couture-focused sneaker is otherwise a wild collage of materials, stitching and embellishment. Uppers boast nylon, suede and leather, all split by Air Footscape Woven-like black or white stitching that runs across the midfoot and toebox.
The collar is elevated as well, making for a high-top cut reminiscent of classic Swoosh models like the Terminator or the Court Force. Though the doubled-up tongues return, they add JPG branding on their tags for a little extra touch of flair. Inside the shoe, the insole has been altered as well, showing off a white and blue striped detail for a nod to a signature Gaultier motif.
