UNDRCRWN D.O.C. x Rockport Delta Boot
UNDRCRWN creates limited edition maturity for the young at heart.
words_Nick Engvall As we all know, sneakerheads have always had a close tie to the streetwear industry. T-shirts and fitteds to sneakerheads, arrive on the importance scale only a touch under socks and laces. UNDRCRWN is one of the streetwear companies that has made a name for themselves with countless creative t-shirts marketed towards the sneakerhead community. They've collaborated with a handful of sneaker manufacturers, but this Friday they look to take on a more mature approach. Rockport is no stranger to the footwear industry, in fact they've been around for more than 35 years. Though they may not be one of the first names that come to mind for most sneakerheads, their parent company Reebok (now owned by adidas) surely is. While Rockport hasn't ventured to far outside the world of dress shoes, they've been able to take the comfort of sneakers and apply it to dress shoes. The pinnacle of this ability being proven by the team of runners who completed the New York City Marathon earlier this month while wearing the company's DresSport 2 shoes. With the age of some of the most die hard sneakerheads steadily rising, the need for more "mature" styles has also increased. To accommodate that need, UNDRCRWN has created a new capsule collection named D.O.C. The Rockport Delta Boot was the chosen platform to jumpstart the premium collection. Of course premium shoes require premium materials, and the combination of Melton wool and suede is exactly that. In addition, the suit-like pinstripes around the ankle area also helps raise the quality standards of these limited edition shoes. The finishing touches include an embossed leather tongue tag, leather heel panel, and bright pink laces that show that maturity can still be young at heart. 100 pairs will be available this upcoming "Black Friday" at UNDRCRWN.com, so if you're interested, get them early. The combination of comfort and style is sure to go quick. via Freshness
