Ever wonder what a silhouette would look like if an opposing company got their hands on a competitors’ sketchbook? Well, your curiosity has finally paid off! Welcome to Sunday Swaps, a new feature to the KicksUSA blog where we take two existing silhouettes from competing companies to create a brand new silhouette. What would the sneaker world look like if Tinker Hatfield worked for adidas? If Stan Smith was a Nike athlete? Or if Kayne went to Puma? These are the types of answers we are going to solve!
New Balance 215 Flyknit
New Balance is a brand synonymous with running. After countless silhouettes for performance and for aesthetics, NB wanted to create a running shoe that would satisfy all of runner’s needs in one silhouette.
Developing a new way to weave lightweight materials together, Flyknit was created to provide proper ventilation and maximum comfort every time you go for a run. The New Balance 215 Flyknit is minimalistic engineering at its best.
