Brandblack has been teasing upcoming models on its Instagram page for the past few weeks. Now, the Brandblack Raven has been teased and it could be a Roshe killer.
A few days ago we posted about how the Nike Roshe One got a refresh with the Roshe Two, including better traction (the One didn’t have any whatsoever so any change was welcome), more cushion, and higher price points. Coming in two variants — a base model ($90) and a Flyknit version ($130) — it’s no surprise that the Roshe has gotten more expensive.
Yet, Brandblack has always offered more for less — just look at its line of consistent and phenomenal basketball sneakers. While there aren’t many tech specs out yet for the Brandblack Raven, the shoe should retail in between the new Roshe Two price points.
With the Brandblack brand come two things: great design and great performance. At the end of 2015 BB was putting knit uppers on the Raven chassis. Now, it looks like the Raven will see a Jacquard-like upper. Just recently, Brandblack teased some upcoming Raven builds and things look very interesting. So, we’re hopeful for this possible Roshe killer, especially when it comes from a brand with so many hits under its belt already.
According to Brandblack, the Raven should be coming very soon — three colorways mid-summer last time BB said anything — but I’d bet on a day right around the new scholastic year.
