It looks like the Jeff Staple x Airwalk collaboration has boldy gone into a pricerange Payless has never seen before. And since these new kicks take the design up a notch, it’s fitting that all 130 pairs will only be available at Reed Space. In commemoration of the new Star Trek prequel that premieres today in theatres around the country, Staple designed these to evoke his idea of “a battle-torn version of The Enterprise.”
They feature a metallic upper in a blackish-grey gunmetal hue upper with black soles. Gone is the classic ‘Airwalker’ insignia, replaced by the more familiar ‘A’, which matches the Star Trek ‘Shield’ logo appearing as a lacelock. More Trekkie-oriented details appear on the tongue, heel, rear quarter and insole. If you’re near Orchard Street today, be sure to drop in and cop a pair that you’ll be sure to find interest for these at a different kind of convention.
