TURBO | DREAM
WAUbscure | TURBO | DREAM
We wanted to launch the best retro inspired low top sneaker in 2019.
And we teamed up with Obscure Sneakers for a collaboration / design contest to find the best designer to do that!
More than 100 contestants submitted their concepts. At the end there was one winner: Blake Scordino, with his TURBO!For this sneaker he took inspiration from his hometown, Birmingham, Alabama: The "magic" city that earned it's name back in the 1880’s because of steel production.
His relation to the sneaker is the city’s history and his passion for design.
After a lot of work in developing this intricate design, here is the TURBO in the OG CW: DREAM
