LA-based brand FairPlay offers a first look at its upcoming collaboration with Brooks Heritage commemorating the 75th anniversary of the “Battle of Los Angeles”.
Launching in Spring 2017, the special project presents a head-to-toe apparel and footwear offering, with the highlight being this limited edition colorway of the Brooks Regent Runner.
The “Battle of Los Angeles” is said to have taken 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.
The colorway of the Regent Runner integrates elements of the story into its aesthetic with a deep black tone from the night skies, reflective 3M embellishments inspired by UFO spaceships and a speckled outsole that represents the spark of gunfire.
The FairPlay x Brooks Heritage “Battle of Los Angeles” is slated to drop in Feb. 2017. Stay tuned…
