Brandblack recently teamed up with Swedish designer, Erik Bjerkesjö to create a military themed, fashion focused, fully functioning Basketball performance sneaker. The sneaker features elements from their J.Crossover signature line mixed with a gladiator sandal. The shoe features a gusset tongue, quilted shroud, and a boot-inspired toe shape, which all help to add to the militarized feel of the shoe.
“From the very beginning I was blown away by JCIII, and I wanted to add a kind of futuristic industrial take on the shoe. Something from my handmade shoemaking history, but also from my childhood, and Swedish background,” – Bjerkesjö
I reached out to Brandblack’s Creative Director Billy Dill, and he was kind enough to send over some of the intial CAD’s for the project. Check them out below.
