jsPOETS — the collaborative project between Jimmy Gorecki‘s JSP and Gino Iannucci‘s POETS — has teamed with heritage shoemaker Padmore & Barnes for a luxurious take on the classic P204. Featuring a burgundy croc leather construction plus intricate detailing that pulls from the streetwise jsPOETS aesthetic and P&B’s rich heritage alike, the shoe has been designed to be the ultimate “chiller,” in skater parlance.
The aforementioned burgundy croc leather upper offers rich texture, and is hand-sewn on the P204’s original last for a traditional feel. Custom midsoles are made from soft crepe and boast a more slim profile for a streamlined dash of elegance. Burgundy laces secure the upper, collars are lined with leather for a premium feel and the insole features gold stamped details that nod to all three parties to complete the look.
The jsPOETS x Padmore & Barnes P204 is set to release exclusively on Iannucci’s Poets webstore Friday, January 29, and will retail for $220 USD.
