For the uppers of this installment, Jun Takahashi chooses to go with a mixture of different leather textures. The toe boxes, quarters and elongated collars are designed with premium tumbled leather while the overlays and Swooshes are done up with a smoother fabric, all of which are covered in solid black. Branding is what stands out the most on these lifestyle kicks as the tongues are styled with co-branded hits while the lower-left heels bear an oversized “CHAOS” hit and the right side reads “GLEICHGEWICHT”, which translates to “balance” in German. The heightened parts of the rear are also accessorized, the left foot showing a “NEUES LEBEN” spell out while the right side displays “NEUR LARM” text which is German for “New Life” and “New Noise.” Midsole wallpaper adds some extra flair as they are supplied with white paint splatter.
If interested in purchasing a pair, European retailers like Goodhood have these slated to drop on February 28 for £135 (approx. $183 USD).
