Air Kitchen Sink

Memorial day weekend has been pretty slow for sneaker news until I saw this from kix and the city. These shoes are called the "lay-up" from the basketball inspired clothing label UNDR-CRWN. The shoe is truly grotesque. In many cases I am writing about well designed shoes with unappealing colors, this is a unappealing shoe with unappealing colors. However somehow I am oddly drawn to them. This is the seconds run of this sneaker and they are using far more bold materials. This shoe features cement pattern sole, elephant print (both inspired from Jordan brand), visable air, basketball pigskin material, and white leather with over-sized perforations, purple suede and hiking boot style laces. Go bold or go home.
