LA-based contemporary label, FairPlay, joins forces with footwear brand, Brooks Heritage to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the “Battle of Los Angeles” — also known as The Great Los Angeles Air Raid, which took place on February 25, 1942, when an anti-aircraft aerial barrage caused a disturbance over the LA skyline.
Although the US government acknowledged the incident as an attempt to take down a wandering weather balloon, many have theorized that it was an attack on the City of Angels by extraterrestrial forces.
Inheriting a stealthy black makeup overall to evoke the blacked-out night sky, the model is pronounced with reflective 3M embellishments inspired by UFO spaceships and a speckled outsole that represents the spark of gunfire.
Look out for this commemorative pair to debut on February 2017. Stay tuned to KicksOnFire for more updates.
I’m into history low-key and aside from the cool theme, the silhouette in this blacked-out finish is pretty sleek and appealing. I’m a fan overall.
