For Spring 2011 Generic Surplus has not only teamed up with Wood Wood and Comme des Garcons SHIRT, but also with Obey on a pair of sneakers. The two brands decided to mesh up two styles from the Generic Surplus collection, creating a mix of a boat shoe and a dock shoe, featuring metal eyelets and work-wear laces. The plimsol sneaker features minimal branding on the tongue and the footbed, resulting in an overall very clean looking sneaker. The Mesh Borstal sneaker comes in three colorways, priced at 65 USD and will release Summer 2011.
The launch of the sneaker will be celebrated with an event on March 25th, at Space 15 Twenty in LA.
Many detailed images of the sneaker follow after the jump.
