L.A.'s Brandblack and Swedish menswear designer Erik Bjerkesjö have come together on the Totem, a new collaborative shoe that comes to market after a year in development. David Raysse, the founder of Brandblack and lead footwear designer, worked with Bjerkesjö to treat the shoe as a true collaboration, sending their designs back and forth to build on the joint product, aptly named the Totem as a nod to the creative process. The result is a functional basketball performance sneaker presented in the aesthetic of a fashion shoe with military undertones, finished in an introductory black and olive colorway. Look for the limited-edition kicks to launch January 23rd at Sneakersnstuff Paris  and February 4th at Storm Copenhagen.
