Mighty Healthy and etnies Plus had joined forces this season to create a capsule collaborative collection of sneakers that are meant to be so versatile that they can be dressed up or dressed down depending on individual style, and hence, reflecting the New York sartorial sensibility. In Ray Mate’s own words, “European cities like Milan and Paris are well known for their distinctive style, unique culture, and world-renowned designers. When I think of New York, obviously architecture comes to mind, but also the inspiration and fashion found throughout the city. Here, some clothing brands and labels become brands simply through lifestyle. No one cares about brand names; their names are the brands.” The collaboration features two pairs of sneakers, a pair of “Califas” sneaker boots with a dressy tough edge, and a pair of low-top “Gild” in tan with brown accents. The Califas sneaker boot is meant to be a more utilitarian for the upcoming winter months in a mix of black suede and brown leather ankle. Check out the preview pictures, and stay tuned for release information to come.
