The upcoming sneaker, similar to its previous versions, has a predominantly white appearance. The upper part is high-quality leather, and the sole unit is black with comfortable tread. Some details on the sides interrupt the clean look of the shoe. However, the olive green terry cloth inner liner stands out. This color is reminiscent of other projects by the Justin R. Saunders agency and is suitable for military attire. However, it does not take away from the minimalist design of most JJJJound collaborations.
