Soulland is no stranger to sneaker collaborations, having previously worked with Nike. However, what the Danish label is doing with Li-Ning is quite different, as the two collaborate on their forthcoming “PRE-INTER-POST” collection.
“PRE-INTER-POST,” as the project is dubbed in Latin, examines running through a new lens, creating physical products that draw inspiration from the various phases of running. It does so by looking beyond the “during” and concentrating on what lies on its two sides.
The project, which was unveiled during Copenhagen Fashion Week, is essentially a continuation of the previous one, iterating on running itself from two entirely different perspectives. This is reflected in both apparel and footwear, with the former comprising essential GORE-TEX outerwear, winter-specific vests, and a series of complementary base layers. In terms of footwear, the Furious Rider Slide and Ace Claw are making their debuts in the Autumn/Winter ’22 collection’s neutral colour palette. The slide evokes comfort, albeit in a subversive manner akin to Li-best; Ning’s the Ace Claw, on the other hand, is far more rugged, constructed in a manner reminiscent of trail-ready offerings.
Below is a brief preview of what Soulland and Li-Ning have in store for us. Come Fall 2022, both the clothing and footwear will be available online and at select retailers.
Nike’s upcoming Union LA Dunk Low features layering that wears away.
