Kölsch Pantofola d'oro trainers shoes ADE

Electronic legend Kölsch joined forces with Italian brand Pantofola d’Oro for an exclusive trainers shoe pair ahead of Amsterdam Dance Event.

The collab sees the launch of a limited run of Kölsch x Pantofola d’Oro trainers, which can be purchased exclusively from contemporary fashion store FOUR Amsterdam during ADE. There will be just 24 pairs made available, all sold on the day (Thursday 17th October), with Kölsch playing a one-hour in-store set to mark the launch. Taking place from 8-9 pm, it will be preceded by an hour-long meet & greet session.

Founded in 1886, Pantofola d’Oro built its reputation around its world-class, handmade football boots that were worn by the likes of Johan Cruyff, Roberto Mancini, Fabio Capello, and Jürgen Klinsman. More recently branching out into more contemporary design, Pantofola’s sophisticated yet understated style is an ideal pairing for Kölsch’s ultra-refined brand of dance music.

The Kompakt mainstay is already poised to play at De Kromhouthal for ADE for a collaborative party between revered Dutch brand STRAF_WERK and Kölsch’s own IPSO imprint. He is joined on the lineup by Henrik Schwarz, Patrice Baumel and Nicky Elisabeth.

A collaboration between two innovators in their respective fields, the Kölsch x Pantofola d’Oro trainers will make the perfect ADE 2019 memento.

Kölsch is set to play with Joris Voorn for Audio Obscura on Thursday; on Friday he will join Worldwide FM during the day and his own IPSO party will kick off the same day from 11 pm. More info here.
