DC Admiral x Lemar & Dauley Double Label Project

Lemar & Dauley gets together for the second time with DC Shoes on their Double Label Project series. This time they chose to work on the DC Life Collection Admiral high top sneaker. The pack consists of a black and a white colorway of the sneaker.

Lemar and Dauley took the name of the shoe literally, and used “Admiral” to inspire the use of regatta sailboats in the design. L&D then took that idea a step further and imagined a metropolitan individual (city boy) placed in a beach bum mentality (so, like a poor man’s boat race. Maybe like a remote control boat race in Central Park). Key details to note are the tone on tone writing of Lemar and Dauley across the heels (a nod to the way boat hulls are detailed with names) and the houndstooth lining (an iconic fabric from the Lemar and Dauley line).” Via Soleblvd.

The DC Admiral x Lemar & Dauley Double Label Project will be released on February 1rst.

Update: The white colorway is already available at Ubiq.
