Arriving at their 6th birthday, Netherlands retailer Calico Jack is set to team up with Mizuno in overwhelming celebration; effectively doing their best high art impression, the two imprints are dousing the Wave Creation Waveknit in Triple White. Though, upon first glance, a simple execution, the pair is poetically at the hands of its own design. Rather than focus on bright schemes and intricate color blocking, it’s the form that does the talking and the Japan-designed creation is most certainly not lacking in that department. Aggressive sole units, which switch up from sportswear influenced hardware at the heel to standard lifestyle unit at the forefoot, illuminate a contrast that can be found throughout the upper constructions: soft woven materials lie at the base with conversely hard materials arriving by way of the profile cage and leather heel wrap which adjust both feel and dimension ever-so-slightly. Heavily influenced by notables within the art world, such as Donald Judd, Damien Hirst, James Turrell, and more, it’s only fitting that you make your connections as you check out the pair in detail below. They will be releasing at the store’s physical space during their August 1st launch party.
