In a bid to see which new sneaker design is most popular, The Hundreds
have taken to their Facebook
page to battle it out. Two versions of the brand new Hoya sneakers have been produced as samples, and only one design will get the go ahead for mass production. These athletic-inspired sneakers were designed by both Ben and Bobby, founders of The Hundreds
–however, they are keeping the designers’ names off the shoes for the time being. On one hand, there’s the all-black Hoya, which is made with full-grain nubuck on its uppers and comes equipped with waxed shoe laces, 3M-molded TPU body cage, leather sockliner and mesh bootie. On the other hand, the safari-printed Hoya is made with leather, silk suede and canvas materials on its uppers. It is also fitted with a neoprene air-mesh bootie and premium pigskin leather sockliner for ultimate comfort. There will only be 100 units of the winning design produced, as indicated on the laser etching on the heel tab. If you like what you see, go cast your vote and see who comes out on top.
