Squarestreet 1000’s Sneakers HK Boutique Unveils Limited Edition Plimsoles

[17/09/12] 

Squarestreet is one of our favourite Hong Kong stores and the boutique-cum-design shop has just launched its 1000’s line: one plimsole in four colours. We like the simplicity of the project. There’s no messing around: No edible gold flakes, no VIP area guarded by one of the world's most repellant anorexics, and no ‘click here if you don’t want AirAsia Insure’. It does exactly what it says - one design in four colours.

The unisex shoe comes in sizes ranging from 36 – 46 and costs HK$400 per pair, or HK$700 for two. Made by hand, the plimsoles are the first iteration of the “squarestreet number’s project” with only 1000 of them made – 250 in each colour. We know Hong Kong is a flip-flop paradise (and there can’t be a worse shoe in a downpour than a plimsole) but if you buy sets of two for $700 you can get through them like Reese’s Pieces.

The squarestreet number’s project is based on the notion that the fewer the models, the more exclusive the product. Ergo, the 1000’s will be more affordable than their future designs such as the squarestreet 100’s or even 10’s. Available in Indigo, Offwhite, Red/Yellow and Sunset/Orange, the shoe has a classic vulcanized 2-piece sole with an expanded rubber insole and an 8oz cotton canvas lining to keep your feet dry. Which means you don’t need to worry about the classic trench foot either.

Square on.
