Barely a month after, the silhouette was again released in a new colorway and as part of a collaboration. The new colorway was called Laser Crimson and had a black body, blue sole, and red collar accents. The collaboration with Gourmet Kickz, meanwhile, covered the shoes with gold all over and added some python touches.
