For those who are feeling that we can’t have Matrix 4 merch fast enough before the film’s 2021 release date, there are also these to quash your fanboy needs in the short term. Coined The Matrix Code, K-Swiss isn’t dropping hints at the next instalment of The Matrix but is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the first film that made fast-moving binary code graphics look cool. The print has been translated onto two K-Swiss silhouettes, the K-Slide and the Classic 2000. Whilst the former features the famous binary code visuals on a pair of slides, the latter goes one step further by debossing it on black leather. There is even a cool film reference applied onto the laces with a red and blue aglet that symbolises the pills that Morpheus offered to Neo. No word yet if wearing these will allow you to dodge bullets in a super-cool fashion though. The pair will be launched on December 31.
