In developing its upcoming sneaker collaboration with Japan’s LOSERS, Melbourne’s Up There looks to its sunny Brisbane roots for inspiration. The resulting Uneaker silhouette is dubbed the “HMAS Up There,” a nod to the HMAS Diamantina frigate docked on the mighty Brisbane River. A subtle nautical theme finds the Uneaker’s upper constructed from Ventile, a 100% cotton fabric that looks decidedly low-tech but is actually waterproof, windproof, breathable, and tear-resistant. Finished in a steel grey upper with red and blue highlights, the kicks drop anchor March 21st in-store and online.
