Just a month ago Premium Goods released their first sneaker collaboration, the Premium Goods Nike Zoom Kobe 1. This week, their special make up with Fila will hit the streets. The shoes will release this Friday, September 5th, but the day before Fila will be hosting an event at their flagship store. Get the details after the jump about the event.
Several months ago we spoke to Clarance of Premium Goods about this project and gave us this insight about the inspiration for the colors and materials of the sneaker.
The Fila Tennis Classic was one of the first shoes at the $200 in the 1980???s. The other shoe was Gucci, the style that inspired Jay Z for his first S.Carter. For the colors I wanted to pay homage to both high priced shoes including Gucci, the Italian colors, and black pride.
The upper has a sort of ballistic style mesh which is to represent a bullet proof vest. Back in the day the drug dealers in Brooklyn went nuts for these kicks and the Guccis at $200.
Something you can???t see from this shot is that they come with three laces (black, green, and red) and all have gold tips as well as an all over repeating print of Brooklyn and Houston on each of the insoles.
