The past year has been a crazy ride for the sneaker community. Adidas jumped over Jumpman in sales, Off-White and Nike bashed our brains in with “The Ten,” ComplexCon Brand activations made noise and countless other extraordinary moments. 2017 was wild as shit.
But no one had quite the year like designer John Geiger. Just nine short months ago, the John Geiger 001 was born. A creation aimed to carve out his own lane within the culture and prove he deserves to be amongst the household names. Handmade in the U.S.A., every release showcases the craftsmanship and attention to detail. The materials may change but those principles stay true.
This newest “Chili Pepper” delivery marks the first release for Geiger in 2018 and looks to propel the brand into new heights. Italian pebbled leather stretches past the midsole while seeking all the attention and soaks up every last detail. Transitioning effortlessly, a blind seam sweeps across the toe box. John Geiger 001 branding is stamped onto the tongue and accented by Chili pepper wax laces. A fresh white midsole contains a clear air bladder all while sitting atop a shark tooth outsole for premier comfort and traction.
