A few days ago we spoke with D’Wayne Edwards, founder of PENSOLE, about a new YouTube Red show: Lace Up: The Ultimate Sneaker Challenge. Now, the first episode is live for free without a Red subscription.
The first episode of Lace Up features celebrity guest judge and legendary actor Anthony Anderson. In “Superstar Dance Off,” the teams will battle to redesign the iconic adidas Superstar using innovative materials and eye-catching colorways.
In the episode professional hip hop dancer Hok Konishi choreographs routines for a local b-boy team, the Portland Trail Breakers, in order to test the new designs in a hip hop dance-off. After all, the Superstar was one of the tools at the center of the b-boy movement.
Check out the episode below and let us know what you think about Lace Up: The Ultimate Sneaker Challenge so far. Which team do you see taking the W?
