Manchester-based streetwear brand Clints is adding its latest Stepper sneakers to its continuously-growing collection. After recently releasing a black and red edition of the silhouette, Clint’s founder Junior Clint and the team flew over to Vidigal, a favela in the heart of Rio de Janeiro to work with local creatives to bring the Brazilian inspiration to life.
Both the “Blue/Aqua” and “Green/Mustard” designs of the sneakers fall under the newly-introduced “Rio Pack,” along with other apparel designs that draw their color inspirations from the classic design of the Brazilian flag. The Stepper sneakers have the same silhouette as the previous editions, with the low-slung model being produced with a canvas upper and an embroidered “Step Correct” slogan being integrated into the lateral walls. The hidden zip-up pocket is also included within the chunky tongues, used to act as a mini-storage compartment.
It isn’t confirmed whether the full “Rio Pack” collection has been presented yet, although along with the Stepper’s, two ’90s-inspired jerseys in green and “Aqua Blue” have been included that feature Clints branding across the front with “Step Correct 10” embroidered onto the back. An accessory belt is also featured along with shorts.
You can have a closer look at the Clints “Rio Pack” above and you can enter the raffle to get your hands on the new Stepper sneaker now on the official Clints website. The general release for the full collection will also be available on the Clints website from July 10 at 8 pm GMT (4 pm EST).
