This collabo was released in November, but when I came upon it I had to post. If there was a pair of kicks I would describe as the ideal, it would be these. Why? Because 1) They are classic basketball sneakers which will never go out of style; 2) They’re also a skate shoe designed by the guys at Huf, a great skateboard shop in SF and who’ve had their hands in numerous dope collaborations; 3) They are bare- stripped down to its essential elements – the fabric, the two colors, and minimal branding; 4) THEY’RE VEGAN!
What else could you ask for? Get some. The best price I found was the black colorway on Premier for $80, and the white at Pure for $85. They are also widely available on Ebay for around the same price.
Oh, and complementing the pack are two tees, snap-back caps and tailored 50′s inspired work jackets. See pictures at Sneaker Freaker.
