New for Fa’21 we are introducing the Temple a logo court shoe – with some skate DNA, on the material side we have a camo pack featuring 3 classic camos and a nice D.O.A (distressed on arrival) pack featuring distressed suede uppers, other than that we like to keep it pretty straight forward skate with mostly suedes in our offering.
Are you using sustainable materials/manufacturing/packaging in your shoe collection?
We continue to source sustainable materials and try to implement them into our collections as much as possible.
How are you approaching durability and athletic performance?
We are constantly looking and researching ways to make our shoes more durable, from adding functional rubber panels to hidden reinforcements in high wear areas.
