Originally seen back in February was an upcoming collaborative effort between Singaporean sneaker store Leftfoot, New Balance and famous sneaker customizers SBTG and Methamphibian. The duo set forth with the theme of “Heaven and Hell”, an evolution of their initial plan of basing it on East (SBTG) meets West (Methamphibian). The two colors on the surface are distinguished by black and white, however upon further inspection, details come to life in a series of intricate highlights and exploration that pushes the realm of sneaker design. A special slide box is included which features a tiger camo print which enables you to place the slide-out portion and the box together to create a full out art piece. The sneakers will be available April 18th at Leftfoot Singapore.
Last year, sneaker customizer Methamphibian was afforded a great opportunity with DC Shoes as part of the skate label’s Artist Project. One year later, the pairing have updated their relationship with new colors based on last years model. The color flips utilize the same palette as seen last year. Available starting April 19th at Atmos.
As world famous sneaker customizers Methamphibian and SBTG hit the drawing board for a run of exclusive designs for Singapore’s Leftfoot boutique, they sought to go against the recent New Balance trend of utilizing various colors and material combos. Instead they decided on a uniform design to represent the theme of Heaven and Hell with intense detailing. From afar, the details are subtle and barely visible, however upon closer inspection the sneaker comes to life. With a release date slated for April, look for these to remain exclusive to Asia. Leftfoot (Singapore/Taipei) and Japanese retailers UNDEFEATED, Mita and Atmos will all split the 444 pairs per color.
