The Ellesse 'Fab 5 Assist 1 Street On Fire' shoe is the latest collaborative piece to come of the menswear line and its recent partnership with the Milan-based skate store Special. Titled Special X Ellesse, the street savvy duo has worked to make the shoe of mass appeal to male athletes.

The white, navy and red tones accord this Ellesse sneaker line with a laid-back minimalist appeal. The company has in the past worked with the AMEN and atmos labels, displaying its preference for cooperative fashion projects.

Unabashed branding is also essential to this custom Special collection. Ellesse's name and basketball-shaped emblem is found on the front, sides and within the shoe, making no mistake of the items origins.
