From the ground up

DC and influential women’s sneaker retailer, Kendo, have paired to introduce the first women’s sneaker in DC’s Double Label™ Retailer Project– The Spruce Kendo.

A woman’s ever evolving sense of style was Kendo’s inspiration for the unique colorway. The shoe features different reptile skins that have been applied with a lenticular technique to create the impression of an ever changing look. They then paired the animal print with opulent gold, tan and copper colors, and added red for an edgy color pop with the Kendo logo featured on the heel as well as printed on the insole.

Releasing April 1, 2009, the Spruce Kendo will be online at and as well as DC retail locations in Los Angeles and Soho.
