MIKAKUS is inspired by nature and its simplicity for its new SS 22 collection – ELEMENTS
A return to the origins of the sneaker concept, in terms of quality, comfort, and design, where the firm has focused on materials, care in manufacturing, and the maximum effort and innovation in each of the phases of the creative process.
The collection is inspired by the perfection of nature and its four elements essential to creating models whose compositions are harmonic, simple, and perfectly balanced. A simplicity that starts from the firm’s know-how to refine the designs while maintaining high standards, improving all aspects, and offering differential added value. The commitment to quality and simplicity is manifested in the use of optimized designs with double layer micro midsoles, high-quality fabrics such as suede and manufacturing leather Italian, flower-colored textures, and premium EVA soles like the Vibram are the main characteristics of this collection.
