This Lacing History calendar is a super creative way to start the year, Jung von Matt/Neckar and asphaltgold have created a homage to the greatest sneaker legends of our time with an innovative calendar.
The large-format calendar showcases twelve of the most legendary sneakers from the past four decades, starting with extremely rare basketball shoes from the seventies and ranging from popular vintage models from the nineties to an original pair straight from Sir Elton John’s concert wardrobe.
The various shoes have been captured in the perfect setting by twelve renowned photographers, who were given free rein to do whatever they pleased. As a result, the pictures reveal not only the personalities of the shoes but also the unique style of each photographer.
The biggest feature, however, is how the calendar is used to check off each day of the month.
Each calendar is accompanied by twelve pairs of shoe laces. These are used to lace the shoes day after day: small eyelets punched in the sneaker photos represent the days of the month. Each fashion legend stands for one month, which is over when the shoe is laced up.
Available for 89,00€, here.
