Our friends at Sully Wong have been hard at work cooking up magic in their footwear kitchen. This time our favourite Toronto sneaker designers have aligned themselves with womenswear designer Amanda Lew Kee to create a premium hi-top sneaker made exclusively for women. Let us introduce you to the SWALK HI – a fusion of the hi-tech athletic nature of Sully Wong, and the edgy, bold style of the talented Amanda Lew Kee. As a sneaker the SD team has had an opportunity to check out prior to October 9th, let us tell you – these shoes are a gem. Black raw-cut leather cover the shoe’s collar, mid and heel – while the interior is lined with Japanese Denim with so much attitude that it has to pop out.
“At Sully Wong, we are always eager to work with other creative visionaries and develop fashion-forward additions for the collection,” said George Sully of Sully Wong. “Amanda Lew Kee’s edgy design and high-street fashion perfectly complement the hand-crafted, clean silhouettes of Sully Wong, and we’re excited to enter the women’s shoe category with the SWALK HI leading the way.”
“The SWALK HI collaboration personifies all aspects, both in design and philosophy, which Sully Wong and I share as a team. The design itself is sleek, smart, and constructed with the finest attention to detail and luxury materials. Together we are aiming to give the women’s market a sophisticated limited edition option, in the realm of casual athletic footwear, focusing on quality over quantity,” states Amanda Lew Kee.
This is another Sully Wong collab that is surely to sell out as Amanda Lew Kee is one of Canada’s rising fashion stars. If you want to kep your hands on a pair the limited edition shoe will be available on October 9th trhough the Sully Wong Online Shop, and at GotStyle boutiques.
