The Battle of Los Angeles refers to an alleged enemy attack and anti-aircraft artillery barrage over Los Angeles on Feb. 25, 1942. U.S. officials acknowledged the incident as an attempt to shoot down a wandering weather balloon, but conspiracy theorists have long believed that it was an extraterrestrial event.
Commemorating the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of Los Angeles, LA-based contemporary brand FairPlay is teaming up with Brooks for a Regent runner collaboration. Inspired by the story, the shoe is executed in deep black to represent the night skies, reflective 3M details for UFO spaceships and a speckled midsole symbolic of gunfire.
The “Battle of Los Angeles” Regent will release Feb. 2017.
