The KANETYK suede W13 is the brand new silhouette I have worked on for the brand ARKK Copenhagen.
With this project, we wanted to go back to what touch us emotionally. We choose materials, details and shapes that all refer to vintage products to sort of bring a nostalgic feeling when touching the shoe.
Inspired by the sneakers we grew up with in the 90’s, the brightly colored Kanetyk combines a retro feeling with the custom Nordic details that have come to define ARKK Copenhagen. Built on the voluminous WAVE13 sole unit (introduced in 2018), the Kanetyk features a hybrid mesh and suede upper, precision stitching throughout, embroidered ARKK logos, a cushioned heel pad, and—for the first time ever—heavy duty hiking laces with neon lace tips.
