24 Kilates and SONRA Work Together on The Bright Proto Sneakers

24 Kilates works in collaboration with SONRA in releasing the captivating Proto sneakers. This project draws visual reference cues from Saffron -- it is one of the most expensive spices in the world. Saffron was first cultivated by the Mediterranean before it branched out to both Asia and Europe. The Proto sneakers are constructed by hand in Germany using premium vegetable-tanned leather materials. The uppers also see a blend of suede on the vamp, recalling the Saffron flower.

Hits of both burgundy and orange are seen in the form of stripes across the heel area and it is finished off with 3M reflective accents. Branding details adorn the shoe through debossed logos and it all sits atop a gum outsole. The collaborative Proto sneakers will be available in retail locations on July 21 and online the following day.
