Made up of two separate pairs, the pack is a homage to the subway systems in New York and Tokyo.

The sneakers are dressed in a subway transit map, with one pair being dedicated to New York subway map and the other shoe has the map of Tokyo’s subway system. Both New York and the other to Tokyo. Both cities are regarding as fast-moving entities known for their expansive transit systems and stylish aesthetics. The Tokyo pair has more of a white undertone, while the New York pair appears more grey.
