Brandblack is looking to make some waves in the lifestyle/runner category. Known for their exceptional basketball sneakers, they’re now testing their techniques on designing runners/lifestyle sneakers. Up next, the Brandblack Viento.

Recently released, the Brandblack Viento comes equipped with a flatknit compression sock-like upper equipped with a rib-knit collar and an integrated clam shell tongue. Other features on the shoe include the full-grain leather sockliner, the full-length high rebound midsole, a high-abrasion rubber on the heel and toe areas and the thermo-plastic mid-foot shank.

Another part of the shoe that stood out to me is how the lacing system incorporates the heel counter to create a very unique aesthetic on the shoe. Also notice how the flatknit upper uses two different designs to create the motif of the upper. Available in the four colorway you see above. Pick up the Brandblack Viento today directly from for the retail price of $110.
