New York-based footwear label Number 288 gives us an early look at their debut collection for Fall/Winter 2014. Designers Jung Suh and Benyam Assefa, graduates of the Parsons School of Design, build on their intentional backgrounds (respectively from South Korea and Ethiopia), creating traditional sneakers with modern twists. Their debut styles feature an array of looks, from mid-tops in hairy Portuguese suede to Italian leather tennis shoes with asymmetrical lacings. Each shoe features the brand’s “II VIII VIII” logo stitched on the spine of the heel. Watch out for the shoes when they release next fall.
