With a goal of designing a shoe that represented the heart and soul of New York, Sprint 2 Queens’ Leo Velasquez and his counterpart Michelle Perez of Goliath set out to create a shoe that best embodied elements of New York. Named the “Tri Borough Connection”, the design incorporates elements of two of New York’s famous pro sports teams as their colorways are seen throughout the shoe in royal blue and orange. Dookie rope laces are also added for that bit of New York flavor. The co-branding from both parties is featured on the heel with NYC embroidered on the toe. 5% of all sales of this shoe will be donated to Sweat Equity Enterprises which focuses on helping youth accomplish their dreams through multi-faceted skill training. Coming on the heels of another recent collabo with Mike Shinoda, these are another strong release from the DC camp. Available now at select DC retailers.
