Stolen Riches may not be a be a widely recognized name amongst sneaker boutiques, but the guys from Toronto are definitely holding it down. In fact, enough to have been chosen as part of the elite twenty for the Pump20 collection. Not only milestoned as its first collab with a major brand, but Stolen Riches is the only Canadian representative in this particular project. Therefore, they decided to make the design all about the shop’s geographic relevance.
If you read up on the Sneakersnstuff Pump20, you may have recalled some casual criticism that some of the other Pump20 weren’t designed with weather and their time of release in mind. Tongues have been bitten as we see here that the Stolen Riches Pump20 is all about fending off the harsh weather of winter. Built with a Teflon-treated pinstripe upper, these babies are water and snow resistant. Add the leather liner not only makes it comfy, but also ensure your feet to be snug and dry. The tongue is perforated leather for a nice material contratst, while the soles take on a smoked black rubber for a “black ice” effect. Accented by a yellow pump and hangtag, as well as a choice of 3 laces- black, red and you guessed it- yellow. For a first collab, kudos to Stolen Riches… this is serious heat to melt some of that snow.
