What happens when sneakerheads get a hold of a luxury sport sedan? RTFKT creative collective and Lexus teamed up to find out.

To celebrate the launch of the 2021 Lexus IS, RTFKT reveals its one-of-one shoe featuring design elements inspired by the IS350 F Sport Dynamic Handling Package. From its athletic stance and slimmer head lights to its carbon fibre spoiler and bold colour schemes, the IS drove the creative team to design RTFKT's first pair of footwear inspired by and partly constructed from vehicle materials.

The RTFKT team first selected a base with a sole closely resembling a tyre for their custom silhouette. Features on the front are shaped like the IS' signature spindle grille, with 3D printed material imitating the carbon fibre spoiler of the car.

The sides of the sneaker showcase Black NuLuxe with light grey stitching from the seats, with a middle silver stripe inspired by the details of the head lights. The team added an F Sport branded tag on the side and a Lexus badge covering the top Velcro strap. Lastly, they selected a vibrant blue hue for the sneaker that most closely resembles Grecian Water, a new colour for Lexus in 2021.
