With a clean grey knit upper, this is contrasted with a striking red portion that makes these stand out. Stone Island’s compass motif adorns the vamp of the left shoe, while the right one feature’s the Boston-based footwear company’s signature NB logo. Italicised “N”s hit the lateral and medial side panels, and down below, a chunky FuelCell midsole offers up an insane amount of comfort with every step.
