Dubai in and of itself is sort of a hybrid city, caught between embracing a massive wave of development and maintaining its cultural heritage as a capital of the Arab world. Touching on that status is this crazy custom design from Nash dubbed the ‘Bedouin’ and produced for the recent Sole DXB sneaker show, which blends the luxurious upper of the Visvim FBT with the retro tech of the New Balance 1500 sole kit on bottom. The result is, as to be expected, pretty unlike any sort of customization we’ve ever seen before, with the cross-branding choices successfully pairing up two totally different footwear fields. Click through for the detailed shots and let us know what you think of the Nash x Sole DXB Bedouin. Photos: Sneaker Freaker
Dubai ain't no capital of the Arab world and they know it. Dubai, rest of UAE and Qatar got lucky off of the oil without getting jacked by the west. It's like calling Texas the capital of America. The real capitals of the Arab world, the places with the most history and culture like Afghanistan and Iraq have been bombed flat. The visvim joints are nice.
