From the ground up

Michalsky introduces his first sneakers a spart of his Fall/Winter 2009 collection this year. We would say it is kind of a big deal, considering that Michael Michalsky is the former adidas Worldwide Creative Director and thus knows a lot about sneakers. Expectations were high and now we can finally show you the line-up.

Each sneaker will be hand-made in Germany and was created in collaboration with traditional sportshoe manufacturer Brütting. Based on a high-top model, that was first introduced in 1964, the sneaker will come in overall 9 individual versions, each with a different name. The sneakers are named Angelus, Diabolos and after the “Seven Deadly Sins” – Luxuria, Invidia, Gula, Ira, Superbia, Avaritia and Acedia. The Luxuria and Invidia models will be limited to 100 pairs worldwide and are numbered and signed by Michael Michalsky.

We are not sure yet, if we like the outcome, mainly because of the strange sole of the sneaker. After the jump a look at all the colorways.
