A new king of kicks was crowned this week at the 2016 Pensole World Sneaker Championship Powered by Foot Locker.
The winning sneaker was designed by Maxwell Lund of Morton, MN. Lund’s handcrafted-in-Portugal design features a FE (For Ever) molded EVA outsole, three different grades of fine Portugal leather, lasered signature of the winning designer on top of the pull tab, World Sneaker Championship logo on the heel and metal lace tips.
Each shoe is individually numbered on the back of the tongue and comes in a box with straps so it converts into a backpack.
“The World Sneaker Championship changed everything for me,” said Lund, WSC winning designer. “Before the tournament, footwear design was nothing more than a dream of mine. This tournament has made me believe in myself.”
The one-of-a-kind Pensole shoe will be sold at Foot Locker stores in New York , Los Angeles , Portland, OR , Toronto, Sydney , London , Paris , Milan, Madrid and on footlocker.com and footlocker.eu – with only 300 pairs retailing worldwide for $180.
