Hikmet Sugoer’s sneaker line SONRA has collaborated with the shipping company DHL and luxury retailer Budapester for a highly-limited Proto DHL-1 sneaker. The SONRA Proto DHL-1 is limited to just 300 units and is made in Germany using recycled DHL bags and scraps from a DHL Boeing 757. The collector’s item celebrates DHL’s 50th anniversary and uses numerous heritage motifs throughout the design, such as a toe box made from DHL Express’ red transport bags. The yellow and red premium suede sneaker also features a DHL logo on the lateral-side heel in black, as well as an aviation-style hang tag that notes the edition number of each pair. Rounding off the sneaker’s design is Budapester’s moniker on the tongue, SONRA branding on the side and a grippy branded outsole finished in gum, which provides a contrasting touch to the crisp white midsole. 
A dust bag is made out of the same polypropylene material that is used on the toe box, and the pair is packaged in a special DHL-style shipping box. The SONRA Proto DHL-1 will be sold via raffle on the dedicated website for $330 USD you have until September 19th to sign up, with a draw commencing on September 20th and pairs to be collected on September 21st.
