“Jumpin out the socks whether cotton or mesh/guaranteed out the box, that my sh*t stay fresh” (Kurious)





You’re probably not familiar with Kurious. He was one of those rappers to look out in the 90s. In 94 to be exact he had this album out called “A Constipated monkey” that made quite a buzz for rhyming kills and his preppy & new style. Go back ten more years and you’re in 1984. George Orwell wrote a book about this. A hypothetic future got descripted in a prophetic way and with a vision that is surprisingly accurate to this very day. Ellesse Heritage too got surprised. Together with their friends at Harvey Nichols they recently dropped this sneaker (shall we call it a trainer since we are in the UK here?) called The Marathon, with a reference to the NY Marathon that inspired this. 1984 excited the fantasy of Harvey Nichols designers to a point that they decided to even include a Lomography Action Sampler camera in the kit. Camera that stands for memories of what you have done, record track of it, media control, exactely like in 1984. In the album that I told you about here at the very beginning there was this song called “Fresh out the box” that seems to go in complete harmony with these kicks here. Nothing but the freshness, my friend. I assure to my readers that the orange sole of this kick is impressive and has a pleasant contrast with the concrete when you walk. The full grain leather is on point and so is the design on the insole. Lightweight with retro class, this is part of Fab 5, a collection that you may have heard about. Beside this model here, Colette in Paris put his Midas touch on The Assist 1, Grand Boutique in Zurich worked on the The Levanto, Sneakersnstuff in Stockholm remixed The Poli and those Natas Kaupas fans over at 24 Kilates in Barcelona applied their design skills on The 117. No doubt this legendary vintage brand wants to put its name on the map in the most legit way. Connections in urban world are what generates collaborations and the whole Fab 5 concept is totally new. I mean: you can do a collaboration, but can you do 5 at the same time?! Most of all, do your stuff look this crispy once it’s fresh out the box? 150 boxes available for each collaboration, you gotta be quick to grab this…
