The New Balance 1600 is dressed in a premium upper made up of suede, leather and mesh that come together to create the black, white and blue upper. White hits are spotted on the midsole, laces and ankle collar. Blue is seen on the heel counter, lining, parts of the midsole, outline of the ‘N’ branding and tongue tag. While black takes care of most of the upper, which include the foxing, toe box, quarter panels, tongue and parts of the heel. The ABZORB cushioning system is implemented on to the midsole of the shoe to ensure comfort and cushioning throughout the whole time. While the Ndurance outsole is set to provide durability on the life span of your shoe. Available now for $180, let us know how you feel about the newest member of the “Riders Club”
Valentino Garavani’s Rock Be Camoulflage High-Top Sneaker carries a hefty price tag of $995.00. But it also features details from the much cheaper and more well known AF1. The detail that most heads will immediately pickup on is the strap which bears a very close resemblance to the one used on the AF1 Mid. And after that detail, you might notice the shoe also has a similar height and cut to the Mid as well. Take it a step further, and the tongue label is executed in a similar manner to way the Nike tongue label appears on its Uptowns as well.
The Brooklyn Museum is set to host an exhibit for sneakerheads entitled “The Rise Of Sneaker Culture”. This exhibit will run from July 10- October 4, 2015, and will be held in the Morris A. and Meyer Schapiro Wing on the 5th floor. This exhibit includes 150 different pairs of sneakers from brands such as Adidas, Nike, Converse, Puma, and Reebok. This exhibit will explore the social history and cultural significance of sneakers by providing film footage, interactive media, and photographic images. Viewers of the exhibit will also see sneaker design drawings, technical innovations, and the marketing campaigns that helped shape the sneaker culture over the years. If you’re ever in Brooklyn this exhibit may be something you want to check out.
