VILLA and adidas Originals launched the new 'Final Draft' Top Ten yesterday with a little help from the Young Trap Lord himself, A$AP Ferg. Held in Brooklyn, the 'Final Draft' launch party put a spotlight on the retailer's 25th anniversary project, a red, white and blue sneaker inspired by the Declaration of Independence.
VILLA explains its reasoning for holding the launch party in NYC:
One of the key reasons why we decided to 'launch' the shoe in New York goes back to a key moment in history which featured a riot breaking out when the original Declaration of Independence arrived in NY in 1776. After speaking to a historian, the event was described as the equivalent to a 'modern day party.' Our celebration was an early kick off leading into Saturday's official release of the VILLA exclusive Adidas Top Ten 'Final Draft.'
The 'Final Draft' Top Ten will officially release at all VILLA locations and online at ruvilla.com on Saturday, June 28. Retail price is set at $90 USD.
