This is the high-top that started a revolution. The year was 1983, the place was New York City. From the Lower East Side to Washington Heights, from Bushwick to Hollis, the streets were alive as cultures blended through skateboarding, music, art and fashion. Downtown Punk met uptown Hip Hop on the asphalt of the city that never sleeps. The Brooklyn Banks were sessioned on the daily. The NYC83 is a classic shoe with DNA straight from that bloodline. Just like the amazing city it was named after, the NYC 83 blends a retro design with the latest classic and technical materials. To be a permanent part of the NYC legacy, rock these kicks with pride.
From The Designer, Brian Reid NYC83 was created to pay homage to one of the greatest US cities; NEW YORK CITY.The Big Apple, The City That Never Sleeps and the birth place of Hip-Hop. This shoe is all style, attitude and full of character which can be seen in its stand-out, “look at” me colorways and its creative materializations. The high-top profile is designed with the streets in mind as its high profile and well-padded collar helps protect your ankles while you skate through life. No matter if it rains or snows, the NYC83 keeps the elements out and your feet warm. The Rubber cup sole sidewall is designed to take a big city beating and come out looking proper. The bottom tread is designed with all weather in mind rain, sleet and snow, this shoe will get you we you need to be whether that’s the skate park, work or up in the club.
