Two life-long sneaker aficionados, Carlos Sanchez and Tim Rodrigues, secured the coveted winners’ circle on Marcus Troy‘s Maverick Project recently. The prize, to collaborate on a one-of-a-kind Nike Air Force 1 Bespoke. Follow an intense design session at Nike Sportswear 21 Mercer, the result was a study of “grown”, “classy and original”, each a correlation to the 3 materials used – waterproof wool, leather, and Kevlar. Like fine Scotch whiskey and cigars, a deep hue of mahogany brown translate each participants’ character perfectly. For that added personal touch, the lettering on the lace dubrae spell out the names of Maverick Project‘s 2 winners. A fine reflection of all 3 men’s curated pursuits.
