The way Melvin Melchor designed FAST BREAK gave to colour and material designers a lot of options to work with. Here is the result of this worldwide project.
Thinking in a basketball player, who was raised in the USA and lived for a while in Spain, this concept merges the hi-tops and basketball shoes and the low tops and runners, two different styles popular on each side of the globe.
The FAST BREAK Cement Grey is composed by soft split suede, nappa calf leather and polyester mesh with a hexagonal pattern, and was handcrafted by Portuguese shoemakers. With the mid top half splited in materials and colours, the sneaker has contrasting details, round elastic laces and hotstamp details.
The white sporty outsole was inspired by Casa Batllo, in Barcelona, and the bottom tells a comfort story.
WAU opens the pre-order for the 3rd colorway of the COMMA.
This CW came along with a minor detail change, taking minimalism to an extreme, reflecting the designer’s influence and vision.
The braided laces of the OG colorways were substituted by premium waxed cotton laces, allowing a smoother lacing and unlacing.
This new colorway, ASH, features premium charcoal textured suede upper paired with tonal natural rubber outsole inspired by the rich texture and depth of ash. The premium waxed cotton laces come in light grey, for a touch of contrast.
