T-Shirt aficionados The Hundreds are branching out into footwear and with great anticipation are gearing up to release their first offering: The Johnson. A great name for what appears to be a great shoe, with a Pointer-esque silhouette and vibrant colours The Johnson slips nicely into the growing trainer market.
“A clean, understated shoe that serves to emphasize the wearer’s overall appearance. And it has everything to do with my roster of kicks growing up in Cali. It’s really a concoction of all my favorite shoes that are representative of youth subcultures: Chucks, Winos, Doc Martens, Vans… I even tried to have the laces staggered like a pair of early Jordans do from an above-perspective. I think I managed to pull off a very sophisticated shoe that retains some character, but is ultra basic when it comes to lines and silhouette.” From Sneaker Freaker.
The Johnson should be available soon from your favourite boutiques.
