Los Angeles-based streetwear brand Konus is taking a dip into the footwear world for the first time with last month’s launch of a collaboration with Unnown Footwear.
Unnown, a collection of men’s and women’s looks that takes inspiration from the comfort of a sneaker for its casual to dressed-up styles, is bringing its expertise to Konus for a limited-edition collection sold exclusively online at KonusBrand.com.
The Konus collection features two men’s and two women’s styles, retailing from $200 to $230. Looks include high-tops, oxfords and chukka boots.
Konus — Kings of New Uniform Standards — was founded in 2014 and focuses on active, contemporary lifestyle looks with street-functional design aesthetics. Its latest offering includes shirts, pants, shorts and jackets in addition to hats and backpacks.
According to the Korean company, it will open its first U.S. retail store in Los Angeles by the end of the year.
Celebrities who have embraced the brand include Ruby Rose, Nick Cannon and Andy Biersack.
