Chicago’s very own Don C partnered with Klarna to gift Benny The Bull a pair of custom sneakers, after the legendary mascot inspired the latest Just Don Courtside Highs.
The sneaker nods to the Chicago Bulls 2023 City Edition Uniform, featuring a rust color reflecting the color of bridges in downtown Chicago, and hot pink elements to mirror that of Klarna’s pink branding.
Around this time last year, Don C was appointed to Creative Strategy and Design Advisor of the Chicago Bulls and was recently appointed to Creative Director of Mitchell & Ness.
The Klarna partnership is one of many highlights from Don C’s run as the Creative Strategy and Design Advisor of the Chicago Bulls, as the designer also recently released the OFF-WHITE c/o Chicago Bulls x Just Don Collection.
For a kid from Chicago that grew up going to Bulls games with my dad, it’s an honor to be able to design a pair of shoes for the iconic Benny the Bull. Even beyond that, I am inspired by the opportunity to work with Klarna to connect fans just like me all around the world with this beloved team through fashion.Don C
Don C presented the sneakers to Benny himself at the United Center during the team’s game against the Phoenix Suns. Fans at the game who visited the Klarna Concierge booth had the opportunity to receive a VIP prize pack, including limited edition Just Don merchandise and signed Bulls gear.
The limited-edition Just Don Courtside High is available now. The retail price is set at $460. To purchase, download the Klarna app. For more sneaker news and release dates, follow @NiceKicks on Instagram.
