Basically, if ya want a crash course in taste, Nepenthes NY is a good place to start.
These beefy runners feature the Swiss sportswear brand's biggest CloudTec sole ever, boosting the shoes' cushioning capabilities through the stratosphere.
Nepenthes NY opted to highlight the heavyweight Cloudmonster amidst New York's subway stations, juxtaposing the tech-y sneaker and gear from the aforementioned Nepenthes brands with the grungy underground.
"We used the transit system because its symbolic to NYC but not commonly glorified," Nepenthes NY said, emphasizing that though On's Cloudmonster is a technical, er, monster, it's also an inherently versatile shoe. Point well made.
To drive the message home, Nepenthes New York complements the vividly-colored Cloudmonster with layers of NEEDLES Sportswear's patterned polyester ripstop, South2 West8's camouflage, and Engineered Garments' endearing leopard print.
