K-Swiss, the American heritage tennis brand, has announced a collaboration with collectible and digital collectible card game “Magic The Gathering.”
The “Magic: The Gathering” x K-Swiss limited-edition sneaker is inspired by the vanguard of strategy card games, which resulted in a complete reimagination of the Gstaad ’86.
K-Swiss taps into “Magic: The Gathering’s” more than 25 years of card character heritage and brings to life character Jace Beleren. The sneakers are crafted with premium leather overlays and underlays that are accented by glow-in-the-dark elements with the leather collar lining, printed designs, rubber outsole and extra laces all inspired by Jace’s power and costume. Metal lace clip-ons modeled after Jace’s character design and a debossed “Magic: The Gathering” logo at the tongue and a sublimated sockliner of Jace’s artwork complete the magical reinvention of this classic K-Swiss style. They are packaged with a special-edition box and tissue paper.
The “Magic: The Gathering” x K-Swiss Gstaad ’86 will be available on September 1. The special-edition launch is limited to 300 pairs and will be available exclusively Hasbro Pulse retailing at $100.
