The Chain Reaction
The chain reaction is the sneaker that took off for Versace.
"The Chain Reaction, a sneaker that embodies the strongest elements of the Versace identity. Eclectic details create a one-of-a-kind shoe characterized by a lightweight, chain-linked rubber sole that takes inspiration from iconic Versace chain jewellery. Signature elements on the newest Versace sneaker include the iconic Greek Key pattern, the 'Chain Reaction' logo patch and braille 'love' lettering expressing the concept that love is blind.",
Bembury left Versace in January 2021 to pursue his own project.
Spunge is Bembury's up coming brand. He has since collaborated with Vans, New Balance, and Crocs.
Bembury is going to run the shoe game and you should keep an eye out for releases.
