Footwear connoisseurs Gourmet join forces with London-based distribution company A Number Of Names for this limited edition 35 X Stingray pack for Holiday 2013. ANON are one of the most respected distribution teams here in the UK and are responsible for brands such as A Bathing Ape, Ice Cream, and Billionaire Boys Club amongst others being stocked in this country. Gourmet for their part have come correct with this special edition take on the modern day classic that is the 35 X shoe. Utilising top grade leather and mesh for the uppers and sitting it atop an ultra-lightweight rubber sole unit results in a shoe that is both packed full of tech details as well as being incredibly aesthetically pleasing.
The Stingray name for this pack is derived from the custom pattern Gourmet and A Number Of Names came up with whilst designing this shoe. This custom print sits somewhere between a camouflage and an animal print (it glows in the dark too!) and I’m sure it’s hugely beneficial for actual stingrays when they’re going about their business. Speaking of actual stingrays, I believe ANON actually rustled up some real-life examples for their recent London launch party for the shoe (on loan for the night from a local Bond villain I believe).
The Gourmet x A Number Of Names 35 Stingray pack is available online now in limited quantities at Urban Industry. You can shop the full range HERE
