Bulgarian-born and London-based designer Kiko Kostadinov has taken over the footwear scene as of late, partnering with ASICS on numerous renewed silhouettes. The designer's creative studio recently lent a helping hand in the creation of the ASICS UN1-S Jogger X81, while also reimagining the 2007 UB5-S GEL-Nimbus 9 running shoe in a series of glacial hues.
Now, Kostadinov is taking to his house line to showcase his very own footwear creations. Introducing the Antharas sneaker, the hiking-inspired silhouette is here to keep you prepared for your next clifftop adventure.
The offering is available in two colorways, featuring an all-black pair alongside another enhanced by pastel tones. The low-top sneaker features waterproof technical underlays that lay beneath smooth leather panels. Suede cuts through the mudguards, while leather layers are stacked throughout in a protective fashion. Both pairs are secured with black rubber straps that extend from the midsoles, fastened by diamond-shaped emblems. Rubberised tongue stamps and Vibram sole units complete the design for a comfortable ride on any journey.
The Kiko Kostadinov Antharas Sneaker is available now via select retailers such as Dover Street Market for $580 USD.
