Death to Tennis x Brandblack

This is a project we will be releasing with the NYC fashion brand Death to Tennis. We worked with Will and Vincent from DTT and experimented with the lacing system as more sculpture than functionality on this model. DTT crew really wanted to work with knitted uppers but not in a traditional “sock” way they challenged us to create a knit that reads more as outerwear than a simple sock knit. The result is a much more structured upper and it sits strong on our proprietary basketball outsole we designed for Vibram.
