The limited-edition sneaker inspired by the Porsche 912
Porsche Design and the Berlin-based footwear label Sonra have teamed up to create a collector’s item: a shoe inspired by the Porsche 912.
The Sonra “Porsche Design Edition” has been created with the help of Sonra CEO Hikmet Sugör – described as the “poster child of the German sneaker scene” – and was inspired by his own red 912.
A mix of vegetable-tanned leather and naturally grained premium cowhide, the shoe blends Porsche Design’s minimalist approach and Sonra’s expertise in street style.
“The opportunity to work with Porsche Design, bring my creative idea to life and design a sneaker is a great honour for me. Especially, as this shoe basically tells the story of my life,” says Sugör. “The limited edition model is a declaration of love to my Porsche 912, which has accompanied me in many emotional moments of my life, and to the Porsche Design brand, which stands for a product design philosophy that is truly one-of-a-kind.”
Released today (October 24), the limited-edition leather sneakers retail for 295 euros (RRP) and are available from the European Porsche Design Online Store.
