Bentley Motors collaborates with a famed shoemaker Dominic Ciambrone, known as The Surgeon, on a limited-edition line of Bentley-inspired sneakers. A limited run of 10 pairs of bespoke sneakers are all currently reserved by Mulliner clients and collectors. To celebrate the partnership, Bentley will also unveil the 1-of-1 Bentley x The Surgeon vehicle next month during design week at Art Basel Miami. Alongside the car, one buyer will receive a matching pair of 1-of-1 sneakers – the ‘Bentley x The Surgeon adidas Forum Low.’
The Bentley x The Surgeon collaboration started earlier this year when Dominic visited the Bentley campus in Crewe to explore the variety of materials, finishes and bespoke elements used throughout the creation of each Bentley. At the coachbuilding division of the brand Bentley Mulliner, he discovered additional creative details and bespoke elements.
Each of the limited-edition, handcrafted sneakers features unique elements including Bentley’s signature diamond quilting, cross-stitching found on the steering wheel, and premium hides just like those used to trim Bentley’s interior designs. These beautiful elements were combined with The Surgeon’s signature aesthetic and skull-and-scalpel monogram.
The limited-edition line of sneakers embodies the variety in the Bentley model range.
Inspired by the characteristics of three families of cars, the identifying sneakers showcase special colors unique to their core values:
- A performance focus (Bentley’s S and Speed ranges). Featuring a Titan Grey and Cricket Ball deep red color palette, this shoe imitates the performance-ready athletic stance of the Continental GT Speed Convertible.
- A wellbeing focus (Bentley’s new Azure range of models). The shoe is highlighted with Saddle-colored details inside.
- A pinnacle design (Bespoke Mulliner collaboration car). A stealth Beluga (Black) and Anthracite (Dark Grey Metallic) exterior with complementing Linen and Beluga interior.
