Younes Bendjima’s Studio FY7 is connecting with New Balance for a new collaboration, which will be on the 992 and inspired by the founders native country of Algeria and international architecture.
Taking to Instagram, he shared the following:
“The suede outer shoe serves as a reflection of the colouration and curvature of the dunes of southern Algeria, which is contrasted by black circular cutaways that symbolize the ancient architecture of Ghardaïa – which heavily influenced the work of Le Corbusier.”
“The shoe is a reminder that no matter where you walk in the world, you can, and should, be proud to carry your history and heritage wherever you go.”
