Bulgarian-born, London-based designer Kiko Kostadinov has recently taken over the footwear scene, partnering with ASICS on many refreshed silhouettes. The designer’s creative studio recently lent a hand in the creation of the ASICS UN1-S Jogger X81, while reimagining the 2007 UB5-S GEL-Nimbus 9 running shoe in a series of icy hues.
Today, Kostadinov uses his house line to present his own shoe designs. Introducing the Antharas sneaker, the hiking-inspired silhouette is here to prepare you for your next clifftop adventure.
The offering comes in two colorways, with an all-black pair and another accented with pastel tones. The low-top sneaker features waterproof technical underlays that sit beneath smooth leather panels. Suede runs through the mudguards, while layers of leather are stacked protectively. Both pairs are secured by black rubber straps that run from the midsole, secured by diamond-shaped emblems. Rubberized tongues and Vibram soles complete the design for a comfortable ride on any ride.
The Kiko Kostadinov Antharas sneaker is available now at select retailers such as Dover Street Market for $580.
