Scandinavian sneaker brand ARKK Copenhagen will soon release its most minimalistic silhouette to date: The new Spyqon FG H-X1 is a technical low-top that will release on August 15 in three colorways; Black, Ash and Army. Reduced to the max, it strips down sneaker design to bare essentials for a progressive look.
The upper features a one-piece knit material called FutureGrid. It creates a form-fitting silhouette and consists of knit patterns that form a skeleton-like structure.
Also have a look at the deconstructed view of the technical sneaker below. You can see how the one-piece knit upper combines with the layered sole and looped laces.
Thanks to FutureGrid, the sock-like fit of the Spyqon FG H-X1 offers support for the wearer’s foot and stretch in key places. Also adding functionality, flexible silicon heel pieces pair up with a lightweight Hover-X1 outsole for a cushioned walk.
Asked about the inspiration for the sleek technical shoe, ARKK Copenhagen pointed to Danish design tradition. In particular, the award-winning 8 House in the Ørestaden of Copenhagen reflects in the shoe. The building’s shape – like the number “8” or the sign for infinity – reflects in the figure-eight shaped laces of the Spyqon FG H-X1.
ARKK Copenhagen is a Nordic sneaker brand established by two Danish co-founders with a passion for streetwear style. Watch this space for more releases from the design-driven brand in the next weeks.
