K-Swiss did right by longtime fans by finally bringing back the iconic Gstaad, originally released in 1986, in early 2015. Now, the Philly-based boutique has announced Ubiq x K-Swiss Gstaad #50LOVE Pack that celebrates young entrepreneurs.
In the Ubiq x K-Swiss presser, the brand explains that it has expanded it’s ambassador program past athletes. K-Swiss has chosen to focus on young entrepreneurs that are “out there doing their thing.” Here’s all the information on the Ubiq x K-Swiss Gstaad pack from Ubiq, but make sure you get to the end because there is a crazy Viper with an awesome double intake setup:
To celebrate their #50LOVEanniversary, we’ve teamed up with K-Swiss to put a UBIQ twist on their iconic 1986 silhouette, the GSTAAD. Much like the brand itself, this sneaker debuted as a top tier performance shoe, and has since become a major fashion staple. The UBIQ x K-Swiss GSTAAD will be available in two colors, “Blue Indigo” and “Burgundy,” both limited to 100 pairs each. Inside the premium faux-wood box you’ll also find extra laces and a signature silk dust bag. They will be available both in-store and online on 3.12, at 10AM for $120.
Inspired heavily by K-Swiss’ aforementioned ambassador program, we picked five young entrepreneurs in our area who we feel are making big moves. We spent a day each with Khalil Malamug (The Wolves Den Barbershop, Razor Sharp Barbershop), Rayhart Flores (Revolver Tattoo), Brian Mabutas (Eat Sleep Race), Tawfeeq Gaines (Search & Rescue), and Erica Maust (Chicory Florals) to find out where they’ve been, where they’re going, and what motivates them to keep progressing forward.
