Congrats to designer Martin Ding for not only placing in the top 4 of Pensole’s 2017 WSC (World Sneaker Championship), but for also getting his design produced. I’m assuming that generally your design only gets produced if you win the competition, but it turns out that a brand EDCO saw Martin’s submission and decided to invest into it and make it a reailty –
“My first ever production is coming out soon! Huge shout out to Pensole crew and Mr. Dwayne Edwards for the support. Special thanks to EDCO brand for investing my design from WSC 2017.” – Martin
Judging from the images below the sneakers came out beautifully, and feature a sock-like upper, welded toe peice and an angled lateral zipper, which all culminate into looking pretty very close to Martin’s initial design renderings (which is always a good thing).
The shoes will be available on T-Mall from January 10th.
