Some of you might know that German designer Michael Michalsky, does not only operate his own fashion label, but also acts as the creative director of luxury leather house MCM. Ever since the designer took over MCM has celebrated quite the comeback and therefore this new collaboration only seems natural.

The Michalsky “Urban Nomad” high top sneaker got remixed with the signature MCM monogram leather. Today we showcase the more classic light brown colorway of the sneaker. In true MCM spirit, the iconic gold label tag of the leather brand has been placed on the tongue of the sneaker, sitting right behind the ankle strap.

The limited edition sneaker will see a release later next week, with more info on that coming here soon.

After the jump you get a detailed look at the Michalsky x MCM “Urban Nomad” high top sneaker.
