With the Agenda Trade Show popping off in Vegas we always get a look at what Brandblack has coming. The brand has consistently brought new technologies to its products, and Vibram outsoles are the latest.
The Tabi, Brandblack’s first unisex shoe, utilizes what looks like a one-piece tubular knit water-resistant upper. Fit is taken care of with the sandal-like Velcro strap system, something that could be coming to the basketball line, according to the Brandblack founder. The entire shoe sits atop a Vibram outsole for comfort and durability.
As part of the AMALGAM AW17 (Autumn/Winter) collection, the Brandblack Tabi executions we’ve seen remain tonal, neutral, and modern, which is in line with the rest of the collection. According to the @BrandblackAlterEgo page, which offers black and white behind-the-scenes looks at what the brand is doing, expect the first delivery of the AMALGAM collection on July 1.
Thoughts on this latest silhouette? It isn’t for ball but to me it’s a really cool concept. And with the peeks we’ve gotten at the AMALGAM AW17 lookbook, the fits look pretty interesting with different textures and materials.
