Gourmet team up with San Francisco’s Black Scale to create this epic “Blvck Gourmet” textured leather version of the 35.
The 35 is without a doubt one of Gourmet’s finest designs. It seems to have all the heritage of classic skate footwear along with mid-top basketball, running and a hefty splash of luxury. Here we see Black Scale get creative with the silhouette, coating it in an all black leather that has been sliced to look like scales. It stinks of luxury, but actually works, unlike a lot of the high fashion sneakers that are doing the rounds at the moment.
Black nylon round laces, contrast white branding and a crisp white midsole finish off this shoe with classic sneaker appeal. It’s a serious collaboration and one that manages to merge bold creativity with stylish subtlety to great affect.
The Gourmet x Black Scale “Blvck Gourmet” 35 is available now from Urban Industry for £115 while stocks last.
