The collaboration are all about those details. The Suede’s classic toe box, tongue, laces, heel and Formstripe are in crimson. It features a Hello kitty pattern and a chunky white sole, while at the bottom of each foot reveals a cheeky surprise, each foot bears a half of Hello kitty’s bow, which when placed next to each other completes the bow.
