A consummation of good taste is generally a presupposition to rendering a good product. Miami’s destination retail spot, ShoeGallery, is know for its keen selection of limited edition kicks, gear and graffiti supplies to fill up a daunting 3,500 square-feet store. When taking their wonderful taste and combining it with a dose of creativity and artistry from the Upset Gentlemen (from Miami Ink), the result is as expected, nothing sub par and everything beyond. The duo from Miami has collaborated with adidas Originals to rework one of the label’s most popular new silhouettes, the ZX 700 Boat, which has been garnering a lot of attention and fans since it was introduced.
The collaborative version draws inspiration from the vintage nautical, combining Oxblood Red leather upper with a neutral bone panel, highlighted with stunning golden eyelets and then thrown in with a surprising blue/white gingham lining and ankle panel twist for a refreshing vibe. The mix of materials also provide an interesting contrast, where leather, fabric and a nylon mesh are worked seamlessly into the sneaker boat shoe.
The collaborative ZX 700 Boat is due to release on Feb. 6 during the Superbowl weekend at ShoeGallery, just in time for the languid spring days and cheery summer afternoons. Pair with everything from cuffed dark denim to khaki shorts and a breezy linen shirt, staying bright and distinguished this season with a good pair of boat shoes is essential. via: HS
