Elevating from footwear collaborations to making its own sneakers, German sneaker store AFEW and its AFEW GOODS line has stepped up to the challenge in recent years with the release of its Yamasura sneaker. Employing sustainable materials, AFEW GOODS introduced the Yamasura last year in a “Soil” colorway that pulled inspiration from the Ferrari Testarossa. Now, with an emphasis on the beauty of a warm sunrise, the Yamasura “Dawn” has been announced.
Again, AFEW carefully selected its material composition as it strives for sustainability. To accomplish this, the upper carries a 100% vegan cornwaste leather alongside mesh while resting atop a sole comprised of BLOOM Algae EVA that is all natural rubber. Designed in Germany and handcrafted in Portugal, the sneaker features a blend of “Sand/Nude/White” throughout, creating a look that seamlessly complements a desert. It accomplishes this with a white mesh toebox surrounded by “Sand” and “Nude” vegan leather overlays. AFEW branding appears at the tongue, midfoot of each side, lateral heel, dubrae, sockliner and heel to complete the look.
The AFEW GOODS Yamasura “Dawn” is limited to 250 pairs that will be distributed via AFEW’s in-store and raffle releases October 1 at a price of €210 EUR (approx. $207 USD). Take a look at the pair above and enter the raffle now for a chance to purchase.
