Like many other footwear companies, New Balance was at the Bread and Butter tradeshow showing off some of their sneakers that they will be releasing in the Holiday season. Other than new colorways of original sneaker models, New Balance will have some interesting projects up their sleeves. One of these projects is the Ndividual where the New Balance logo can be replaced with exchangeable velcro “N” signs. This allows you to customize how you want your sneaker to look like. There are many other nice projects as well and you can find some pictures of them after the jump.
Footwear company, Vans, also had a booth at the Bread and Butter tradeshow. There isn’t much information on the sneakers right now but it looks like they will be doing collaborations with Dennis Mcnett and Independent Skate Company. More information will be released over time but for now you can have a sneak peek after the jump.
Greg from Mishka gave us a sneak peek of some of the upcoming items from the brand Mishka. Like previous seasons, Mishka’s designs are fun and playful. Their clothing embodies a lot of artwork. For example, for the upcoming collection, they will have a collaboration t-shirt with Derek Riggs who originally designed the Iron Maiden album cover. It is nice to see how full blown Mishka’s upcoming collection is because just few years ago and like many other brands, they were just making t-shirts.
Cipher is a relatively new sneaker brand that has been around for a year or so. Even though they’re quite new to the market, that doesn’t stop them to make a quality shoe for people to wear. Unlike many sneaker brands which just play on existing sneaker models, Cipher reinvents it and creates their own distinct style. Nice quality material is used plus the colorway is subtle meaning they can last many seasons and still be in style.
