Danish duo hummel and Sneaker Banquet are set to release a modern rework of the classic Victory silhouette.
Specifically designed by hummel in the late '70s for indoor sports use, the shoe became one of most popular footwear choices across Northern Europe both on the court and on the street. Co-founder of Sneaker Banquet Pelle Kylsner was a huge fan and thus became the driving force behind the partnership:
“The hummel Victory was the very first shoe I fell in love with. I was around 7 or 8 years when I got it and I was completely sold. Today, I still remember the smell of the shoe when I opened the box and how – at least in my mind – the shoe enhanced all my skills drastically when playing football or handball. There was no doubt in my mind that it was the shoe we wanted to collaborate on."
The new edition boasts a suede and double-layered mesh upper and an authentic "peacoat blue" dark rubber outsole, finished off with retro flat cotton laces.
The hummel x Sneaker Banquet Victory is available at select retailers now, including Hanon.
