New Balance 850 x SnkrFrkr (Skippy)

Sneaker Freaker releases their next sneaker project and this time the New Balance 850 gets the Sneaker Freaker treatment.

It feels like forever since our last Sneaker Freaker footwear project. As is the case with these things, months come and go and before you know it, time has drifted by like red desert sand through the hourglass. When New Balance tapped us for a shoe, it’s fair to say we were rather chuffed. We were also feeling the classic sophomore pressure – what could we possibly do to top our Blaze of Glory project?

In the past year, the footwear world has shifted to an obsession with bland canvas and vulcanised hell. If there was one thing we knew, it was that we weren’t going down without a struggle! Yes, we want to create something that will stand the test of time, but by today’s standards, that means an avalanche of graydom. Why create a collaboration if you’re not pushing things forward? Why the neo-conservatism all of sudden? The world might have gone to the dogs, but it doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with your shoes anymore. We decided to be crazy-brave and dig in to create something totally awesome, that I might add was also totally wearable. Impossible is nothing!

These sneakers will be available on December 5th. Read more about them here.
