With the rise of TikTok, Discord, too, surged in users, now rife with many a Valorant Immortal and their harem of “kittens.” Notable brands, NFT projects, and the like have taken a keen interest in the platform as well, effectively increasing the number of communities by no small number.
Now one of the most significant social hubs in existence — especially with the pandemic keeping people indoors — Discord is soon to receive their very first collaborative sneaker thanks to Collegium, an Orange County based outfit known for their use of premium materials.
The collaboration builds atop the footwear brand’s signature Pillar Destroy High, applying a colorway inspired by the Discord mascot Wumpus. Alongside hits of dark and light grey suede, the upper is accented with touches of purple in nod to the character’s fur. Its green leaf is also represented by way of the heel tab, which is easy to miss much like the logo debossed into the heel. What’s more, the bright yellow insole features Clyde, another popular mascot, and the company’s “Imagine a Place” tagline.
For a closer look at this surprising partnership, take a peek below. A limited number of pairs will be available through an exclusive giveaway held on January 28th via Collegium’s Discord server.
