BENNY GOLD X THE HUNDREDS - BEHIND THE SHOES


 The Hundreds catches up with Benny Gold at his shop to discuss the collaboration shoe projectThe well-reputed illustrator, designer, and brand owner poured his efforts into his very own Johnson Low.  Inspired by the city of San Francisco and the 75th anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge, the outer shell of the shoe is made with a rust colored patina and ostrich leather (symbolizing the bridge’s colorway) and features traces of aqua throughout the shoe (to tie in the presence of the Pacific Ocean). Gradient gray and white laces are representative of San Francisco’s ubiuitous fog, while the tongue and insole feature a specially designed The Hundreds logo refashioned to include Benny Gold’s trademark paper plane. The shoe will be available in limited quantities at The Hundreds’ and Benny Gold’s flagship locations this Friday and through The Hundreds’ and Benny Gold’s Online Shops on November 12, 2012.
