If you have been to the space of Partners and Spade on Great Jones Street off Bowery in NYC, you will know how off beat and quirky Andy Spade and Anthony Sperduti (founders of the store) are. And if you know how special and odd these two are, you won't be surprised at their summer new summer stint-- ping pong.
Partners and Spade has teamed up with K-Swiss this summer to present us with a ping pong tournament and corresponding shoe collaboration. Fantastically named, "August Sweatout Ping Pong Classic", the games held on Aug 29 will take over the left-field retail space/gallery of Partners and Spade.
For this joyous healthily sweaty occasion, special collaboration ping pong shoes are created to serve the players' active needs. The Ping Pong Shoes are made in classic K-Swiss style with four stripes in white, orange and neon. The shoes will be sold at the day of the event for only $80; however, if you are feeling like shelling out and leveraging your game even more, you can also purchase a custom made ping pong table.
Remember to bring your own balls of fury on Aug 29 to Partners and Spade. Loser gets... well, a chance to sweat and more time to buy shoes.
