Maliko looks at tyres of heavy-duty trucks for its inspiration for their spring summer 2019 collection- These tyres are known for their quality of abrasion resistance and high loading capacity.
This tyre quality reveals the choice of using abrasion resistant high platform soles with high resilience, mirroring the “brutalist” aesthetics of the tyres. The bright colour pallete used in the collection was drawn from the Maliko brand ethos.
