In Photos: The King Of Trainers collaboration with Ellesse

Franklin Boateng aka @KingOfTrainers recently held an event unveil his recent collaboration with Ellesse. After being invited by Ellesse last year to be part of The Design Consel alongside 8 other sneaker connoisseurs from around the world, the opportunity was handed to make his own interpretation of the SS20 Tanker silhouette. 

The collaboration was dedicated to his mother and her love for tennis, drawing inspiration from tennis legend Boris Becker's Ellesse track top which he sported in his first Wimbledon win. Amazingly, the actually track top he wore in 1985 was on show at the event.
