After only one year of business, NY boutique RISE teams up with Saucony to bring you the 9000 “Keys Open Doors” sneaker. The brand has been able to gain the trust of those consumers who are constantly searching for something different – which surfaces in the concept of the shoe featuring tumbled white leather, pigskin suede, a speckled midsole, and piano graphics.
The good people over at RISE wrote a more in-depth piece on the intentions of their shoe and their hopes to create something that lasts:
Once our creative process began, we revelled in the opportunity to work in the greatest color palette possible — black and white. Doing so meant that we’d be communicating through the individual details executed throughout the shoe. From the genuine, hard white tumbled leather to the double-dyed, ebony perforated pigskin suede, we were crafting something we wanted to be timeless — not just seasonal or trend driven.
Meanwhile, in keeping true to the grittiness of our street-oriented storyline, we chose to have each seam left displaying raw edges. Doing so mimicked an “unfinished” look, a detail that is evident in everything RISE. As individuals, each of us is a work in progress and these details are a reflection of ourselves.
Pairs will be available IN-STORE this Friday, November 14th at 9PM EST on a first come, first serve basis.
An exclusive online release is set for Monday, November 17th at 7PM EST inside the webstore at RISE45.com.
