Amsterdam based sneaker brand Mercer is back with a new model of the W3RD, the “Kimono 2.0”. Inspired by Japanese artist Sanzo Wada who dedicated his entire life creating color combinations for Kimonos, de designer of Mercer Amsterdam took on his skills and blended it all together. At the time he was deemed to be a crazy person, but when his work was discovered years later, they considered him to be a genius. Wada named every color himself, and we embossed the names in Kanji in gold on the upper – as a homage to Wada.
The new model of the sneaker releases this Friday in stores and online.
