We just received this press release at Whitelines HQ and thought we'd pass the news on.
Apparently this is the Vibram 2CM (which stands for “2 colour molding"). These crazy ass soles are the latest in rubber/dye/technology type stuff. Ok, we’re out of our depth here but basically they look f**n MAD. Vibram have been working with K2 and Burton on their boot ranges so chances are we’ll be seeing these on the shelves next year - it seems that the recent wave of crazy bright outerwear has travelled south to our feet.
We’re not too sure about the noughts and crosses though. We might send an email requesting a sole that has a reference to Connect 4 or Jenga, or maybe even Kerplunk? The possibilities are endless!
If you wanna read more about it (and who wouldn’t?) check out Vibram.com and get stuck into it there. I wonder who will be the first pro to don these loud soles? Our money’s on Jussi. I mean, unless they’re made out of recycled Pirellis it ain’t gona be Nicolas Müller...
