L.A.'s FairPlay is preparing a collaboration with Brooks Heritage that celebrates the 75th anniversary of the "Battle of Los Angeles," an incident in which area residents saw a barrage of anti-aircraft artillery over the city skyline on February 25, 1942. While the U.S. government acknowledged the event as an attempt to take down a wayward weather balloon, others have theorized an attack on the City of Angels by extraterrestrial forces. The collaboration will feature both apparel and footwear, the latter highlighted by this special-edition Brooks Regent Runner, featuring black nighttime coloring with reflective 3M embellishments inspired by UFOs and a speckled outsole symbolizing the the spark of gunfire. The collaboration will launch sometime in spring of 2017.
