PATTA X REEBOK CLUB C 85

https://www.patta.nl/blogs/news/patta-x-reebok-club-c-85

Patta has worked with Reebok on a custom Club C 85. Made exclusively for Patta, this classic 80s court silhouette features a full-grain leather upper, with a perforated toe panel and foam tongue for comfort and breathability. The traditional Reebok woven label with the Union Jack was replaced by Patta branding and the Pan-African flag. The Red, Black & Green flag was conceived by Marcus Garvey exactly 100 years ago and stands for Pan- African unity. Part of the proceeds from this shoe will always be donated to The Black Archives from Amsterdam, London’s Sistah Space & The Good Neighborhood Collective in Milan, all local organisations for communities of the African Diaspora, so we can structurally support them in their work.

The Patta x Reebok Club C 85 is planned to be a never-out-of-stock style and a Patta in-store exclusive, available from Patta Amsterdam, Milan and London starting December 5th at 12:00 CET.

More about the organisations that will be supported with this project:

Amsterdam: The Black Archives, a unique historical archive for inspiring conversations, activities and literature from Black and other perspectives that are often overlooked elsewhere. The Black Archives documents the history of black emancipation movements and individuals in The Netherlands. Visit The Black Archives at www.theblackarchives.nl

London: Sistah Space, a charity run by a team of volunteers that works with African heritage women & girls who have experienced domestic or sexual abuse or who have lost a loved one to domestic violence. Sistah Space provides advice and support as well as practical help to those who are apprehensive about going to mainstream services without support, such as the police and other statutory services. Sistah Space’ mission is to encourage African heritage survivors/victims to report abuse by providing a safe cultural venue for victims to disclose abuse in a confidential environment, and to encourage community integration. Visit Sistah Space at www.sistahspace.org

Milan: The Good Neighborhood Collective, a Milan-based collective that gives a voice to emerging Italian second-generation creatives, stimulating collaborations, suggesting connections and offering support in many different ways.

PRADA & ADIDAS’ NEW SNEAKER IS A HUGE UPGRADE ON THEIR SUPERSTARS

https://www.highsnobiety.com/p/prada-adidas-ap-luna-rossa-21-release-date-price/

Brand: Prada x adidas

Model: A+P Luna Rossa 21

Release Date: December 9

Price: TBC

Buy: Online and in-store at Prada boutiques and adidas flagship stores worldwide, as well as select retailers TBC

prada-adidas-ap-luna-rossa-21-release-date-price-06prada-adidas-ap-luna-rossa-21-release-date-price-01prada-adidas-ap-luna-rossa-21-release-date-price-03prada-adidas-ap-luna-rossa-21-release-date-price-02

What We’re Saying: Finally, after months of leaks and teasers, adidas and Prada have unveiled the next iteration of their collaboration. After Prada reinterpreted the adidas Superstar, it’s now adidas’ turn to bring its expertise to Prada’s world. The result is the futuristic A+P Luna Rossa 21, which has been designed for the Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli sailing team and is officially inspired by the design of the new AC75 Luna Rossa boat as well as iconic Prada and adidas sneakers from the past.

A more apt description would be that the shoe is a Prada America’s Cup sneaker with materials and technology borrowed from adidas. The sneaker features a Boost midsole, as well as a upper made of recycled materials called “PRIMEGREEN.”

What the Internet Is Saying: Early opinion on the shoes is split, though that’s likely not enough to prevent the sneakers from selling out immediately upon release. Some feel the expected retail price will be too high — though a relatively high retail price is to be expected from a Prada x adidas release. Others, like @tsunamiace, say the shoe is growing on them. If you ask us, this shoe most definitely trumps the Superstars and is more in-line with what one would expect an adidas x Prada shoe to look like.

Here's An Official Look at the J Balvin x Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG

Popping with bright gradients.

https://hypebeast.com/2020/11/j-balvin-nike-air-jordan-1-retro-high-og-dc3481-900-info

Official images of Nike‘s J Balvin x Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG have arrived. After patiently waiting since its first public appearance on the feet of J Balvin during his Super Bowl LIV half-time performance, the sneakers’ release is just a few days away.

This colourway is livened up by bright red, yellow, green and blue gradients over a set of finely textured uppers. Woven at the top of the shoes are a bold Jumpman logo on the right foot and a Smiley motif on the left. A small section of padded black leather collars peers slightly over the upper canvas panel that comes with round cut-outs. The rest of the shoes’ panels come with jagged edges: around the eyelets, rear quarter, Swoosh and toebox. Finishing touches like a removable patch logo at the lateral rear quarter, black laces, semi-exposed foam at the tongue and a pink midsole round off the details of the sneakers’ vibrant design.

The J Balvin x Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG will be available on December 3, 11 a.m. EST on Nike Britain’s website for £165 GBP (approximately $220 USD).

CONCEPT

“I realized that these shoes are produced just like pottery.” - Customer touring MoonStar’s Shoes Like Pottery factory in Japan

The hallmark of Shoes Like Pottery is the vulcanizing, or ka-ryu, process in Japanese, performed by only a select handful of shoe manufacturers around the world. In the ka-ryu process, each shoe is fired in a kiln which causes the sulfur mixed inside the raw rubber to chemically react, returning the rubber to its natural elasticity and creating a soft, flexible, and durable sole.

Above all, Shoes Like Pottery features high-quality, beautifully textured fabric, hand-sewn by the skilled craftsmen of Kurume.

Now available in the U.S. for the first time in history, we are eager to share the story of Shoes Like Pottery and the ka-ryu process that has been cultivated over the years.

MANUFACTURING

manufacture1_1.jpgmanufacture1_2.jpgmanufacture1_3.jpgmanufacture1_4.jpgmanufacture1_5.jpg

STEP 1: Materials and Parts

Shoes Like Pottery sources only the highest quality materials, carefully chosen to maintain the integrity of each pair of shoes.
manufacture2_1.jpgmanufacture2_2.jpgmanufacture2_3.jpg

STEP 2: Sewing

Sewing the cutting die parts firmly is carried out by skilled craftsman whose handiwork is indispensable.
manufacture3_1.jpgmanufacture3_2.jpgmanufacture3_3.jpgmanufacture3_4.jpgmanufacture3_5.jpg

STEP 3: Assembly

A skilled craftsman attaches the upper to the outsole according to the shape of the last, and then puts a tape around it. This process is impossible to do by machine, therefore each pair is done by hand. Shoes Like Pottery outsoles are very flexible because they are made of raw rubber that feels like soft clay, supporting the shape of each shoe. Our rubber adhesive cements the outsole to the upper, creating a resilient and lasting shoe. Once fully assembled the shoe is arranged on a rack to get ready for vulcanizing in the kiln.
manufacture4_1.jpgmanufacture4_2.jpgmanufacture4_3.jpgmanufacture4_4.jpg

STEP 4: Vulcanizing

The shoes are fired in a 120 °C (248 °F) kiln for 70 minutes, similar to the way Japanese pottery is fired. The extreme heat and pressure causes the sulfur mixed inside the raw rubber to chemically react, returning the rubber to its original shape. Our unique ka-ryu process enables us to hand-craft small batches of some of the world’s finest vulcanized shoes.

Function 1

We use a rubber adhesive to cement the canvas to the outsole. In addition, we use rubber to interline and reinforce the toe and heel areas. Since our rubber is both durable and flexible, the shoe has a long life and holds a beautiful shape.

Function 2

he foxing elastic tape around the sole is stamped with a rubber seal bearing the brand logo, resembling the traditional sealing wax used by manufacturers in the past. Each logo seal is embossed individually, which means that each pair of Shoes Like Pottery is different and unique.

Function 3

The soles are created to resemble the pebbled texture of raw rubber. In addition, the soles of the shoe are a vivid shade of blue, giving a flash of color to your steps.
