Known almost exclusively for its use in body armor and other bullet-resistant materials, Kevlar has been seeing action of a different kind lately, being incorporated into streetwear items including OAMC‘s recent Kevlar Radial Low silhouette. With the material having a long-established reputation for durability and stopping power, the footwear brand saw an opportunity to — why not? — test the shoe by shooting it with a machine gun, specifically a Colt M4 Commando.
Stay tuned for more field tests in the near future. For those looking to just wear the shoes, they are currently available for order at select stockists including HAVEN.
