Afour released sneaker models with rubber parts from basketballs

St. Petersburg brand of handmade sneakers Afour released a model of sabotage sneakers in a special design designed for members of the freestyle team Ballaholix, which is engaged in the development of basketball and hip-hop culture in Russia and in the world. In the manufacture of sneakers, rubber parts from old basketballs were used. 

“The Ballaholix team is a sports organization from St. Petersburg that develops basketball and hip-hop culture in Russia and the world. In addition, the guys have their own unique school, in which they teach the interesting and fascinating art of basketball freestyle, - says the founder of the Afour brand Vladimir Grigoriev. - “To bring the idea to life, we used old balls that the guys had previously used for their training and performances. The balls were neatly cut to separate the top layer, which served as the material for some of the sneaker parts. Further, the details were cut in a special way, since after disassembly they retained the radius of the ball. From the features of the material and the size of the patterns, we made some of the parts from suede and 3D mesh. The team logo adorns the nose of the shoe. "

Models are available in two different color options. Their coloring repeats the original coloring of donor balls.
