To create the design of the GEL-MAI model, Vivienne Westwood turned to her legacy and used the “Squiggle” pattern, which first appeared in her fall-winter 1981 collection, as a print on her shoe. Sneakers are made in the same color combination of red and white as the original pattern. The top of the shoe is complemented by a knitted toe; on the heel of the sneaker there is a Vivienne Westwood logo.

The “Squiggle” print has become a reference point for creating the design and the second model of the GEL-KAYANO 5 OG capsule, the sneakers are presented in red and orange colors. The archived pattern is launched across the entire lining of the shoe. The multi-colored Vivienne Westwood logo flaunts on the outside of the heel of the shoe.
