Do you have the need for speed? If the answer is YES, you’ve come to the right place. Italian fashion house Moncler, known for their winter-proof down jackets, have set aside their usual practice to team up with performance wear specialists HOKA® to create an ultra-lightweight shoe designed for endurance, comfort and acceleration. Today also makes the launch of House of Genius: Moncler’s first London pop-up at the Corner Shop in Selfridges. The physical space curated and designed by founder and CEO of Highsnobiety, David Fischer, invites fans of the brand to step inside the world of MONDOGENIUS and to discover a number of exclusive collaborations and reimagined pieces.
The Mafate Speed 2 shoe is just one them. With a track record on rough terrain, uphill or pacing it through the city streets, the Mafate Speed 2 also improves wearers’ downhill pace. For footwear fans and those in the know, this is an evolution of the first HOKA® silhouette ever created. Kitted out with a Vibram® Megagrip outsole and extra cushioning for a snug fit, the Mafate is available in a futuristic silver finish with distinctive tricolour detailing and Moncler’s felt patch logo. Inspired by the heady heights of the Alps, this Moncler x HOKA® collab encourages runners to head for the peaks.
For anyone seeking adventure-packed routes, Mafate Speed 2 is available at Moncler’s House of Genius stores, pop-ups (like Selfridges’ Corner Shop) and a selection of Moncler boutiques worldwide from 1st November. You can also visit HOKA.com to secure your pair from 1st December 2021.
Go on, take a hike.
