Following FILA’s venture into the chunky sneaker trend, Brandblack recently unveiled its upcoming Aura II model. Building upon the exaggerated look of its Aura, the latest sneaker from the footwear label draws inspiration from a variety of shoes that have become street style favorites.

Dressed in a ’90s-inspired colorway, the neon green, orange and black tones found on the Aura II’s bootie-supported upper serve to highlight the striking dynamic panels found in the mixed-material construction. While a layered chunky midsole and a traction-focused Vibram-branded rubber outsole fully express the shoe’s trendy look.

No word on when the Aura II is set to release, but head over to Brandblack’s web shop to check out all the brand’s unique footwear offerings. Also, make sure to check out Brandblack’s recently unveiled Vibram-soled basketball shoe.
