I don’t get it? They basically took a shoe from 2018 and painted it in a shoe colour from the 1970s (I didn’t even make the connection to the American flag until the article mentioned it – I just know this colour combo as something Nike and Adidas did in the 70s) and called it “innovative”? How exactly are they “going against the grain by 2018 standards”? Is it because they didn’t make a collaboration shoe look like something put out by Balenciaga on a Boost sole?
Can somebody help me see what I’m clearly missing?
