Editor’s Notes: Wimbledon and the tennis Grand Slam’s all-white dress code might be over, but that hasn’t stopped heritage sportswear brand Hi-Tec from releasing an all-white (save for a few accents here and there) version of its Badwater 146 sneaker style. When it debuted in 1989 the sneaker was one of the brand’s premier running models that was made for both the trail and road running. As the name suggests, it was designed for the 146 mile Badwater ultra-marathon.

A revamped version, which features a reworked upper pattern and ABC (Air Ball Concept) outsole is now available via the link above.
