The Saint Barkley x Sole Superior Sneaker Collaboration Releases On 9 July
Step up your sneaker game with Saint Barkley and Sole superior
An international collaboration project born from mutual admiration and respect, kawan-kwans Saint Barkley (Indonesia) and Sole Superior (Singapore) present a limited edition sneaker 4 years in the making this 9 July 2023. That’s right, the highly anticipated Saint Barkley X Sole Superior collaboration is dropping soon.
A Weird Beginning
First previewed in Singapore at Sole Superior 2022 last November and introduced to Indonesian audiences at Jakarta Sneaker Day in February 2023, the collaboration generated a lot of unplanned buzz when the sample pairs were stolen from the secured display, which only serves to show how much people actually want these sneakers.
Moreover, both Saint Barkley and Sole Superior took this in stride and offered a reward for any assistance in recovering the samples, praising the sneaker thief for having “Terrific Taste, Terrible Ethics”. The samples were never recovered. Fortunately, the collaboration will finally reach fans on Sunday, 9 July 2023.
Naturally, the SB X SS collaboration will be limited to only 500 pairs, with the sneakers set to be released in-store at Saint Barkley HQ in Bandung, and online as well. Inspired by the popularity of ‘Scratch N Sniff’ stickers of the 1980s, the SB X SS sneaker collab sports many cool features.
Among these cool features is a bubblegum scented tongue that discharges scent when coming in contact with the wearer’s foot. Peach suede upper with light reflective stitching as well as a vulcanised white rubber midsole with Saint Barkley’s trademark volt green sole.
Making It Special
3 exclusive SB x SS Air Fresheners Action figure/ Clear Window shoebox packaging are also included. The sneaker release will also be accompanied by a matching apparel capsule that consists of a Tee Shirt, Cap and Coach Jacket, all in limited numbers.
