Discord may have started of an online gathering ground for the gaming community, though the platform has grown to host communities of various interests such as NFTs, anime, sports, and sneakers. To celebrate its thriving sneakerhead communities, the company has teamed up with premium sneaker brand Collegium for its first-ever sneaker collaboration.
The Discord x Collegium sneaker is based off of Discord’s loveable Wumpus character. The purple shade of Wumpus’ fur is featured on the quarter panels and Discord and Collegium-branded tongue tags, while a hit of green on the heel represents the green leaf often found on the character’s head. The rest of the paneling include a light grey leather base, darker grey suede overlays, and a grey nylon tongue. Additional details include a debossed Wumpus logo on the right shoe’s lateral heel and vibrant yellow midsoles with Discord’s new “Imagine a Place” tagline alongside both Wumpus and Clyde, the main Discord logo/mascot. Like all of Collegium’s footwear, the pairs are Made in Italy and are built with premium materials with the highest quality craftsmanship.
A limited number of pairs of the Discord x Collegium Pillar Destruction High “Blurple Suede” will be available via an exclusive giveaway on Collegium’s Discord server on January 28th. Check out the pair below and follow Collegium’s Instagram for updates, including info on a “Black Toe” colorway.
