Kashmir’s on the feet.
Nordic Pack. Style Number: 308038 431. It was designed by Jeff Staple and released in 2006 and was the women’s version of the Nordic Pack. There are a lot of nice details on this shoe, for me these were one step ahead of the men’s release. Some ballistic nylons, merino wool, army olive swoosh and backtab, and a bright liner. There are also silhouettes of skiers on the mid-panel.
It has the Nordic map captured on the insole and comes with two laces. The rope laces looks great against the shoe. Just picked these up recently.
About 5 weeks back I had met up with a friend at 21 Mercer that was in town to make a Bespoke. My only plans were to go there to chill for a couple hours and see my friends design; so much for that. Not sure who I was kidding because by the time my friend was done with his render, I was already holding materials in my hand planning my next move.
So here is my end product.. a Bespoke fittingly named “Off the Cuff”. Grey canvas upper, sail midsole. Binary bottom eyelets, laces and outsole with infrared pivots. Blue vipera swoosh, backtab & heel strip. Leather deubre with gold tipped aglets. Cork insole and alce draping the liner and secondary swoosh.
Three Artists.. One Song. Debuting: Frank Ocean x The Clash x Diplo – Hero. This was sponsored by Converse Music, it also contains additional vocals from the West Los Angeles Children’s Choir. The arrangement and production on this track is top notch, a lot of hints of dub & reggae within the undertone.
