We Are Underdogs’ Project Hex collection is built on the simple idea that an open mold midsole/outsole doesn’t limit the creativity of great creatives. To prove the theory, WAU selected a Vibram midsole/outsole and invited Blake Scordino, Jason Diaz, Kaito Choy, Seth Fowler, Vidit Singh, and our own Chris Chase to design a lifestyle shoe built on one sole. In the video, Chris unveils three of the silhouettes, including his own, which he named the Hella Fire ?.
