File this under partnerships that make complete and total sense. This morning, Public School and Nike's Jordan brand announced that they worked together on two pairs of limited edition sneakers.
The shoes combine a black leather upper with a white-and-blue sole. Fifty lucky friends of the Public School brand will get a special edition of the shoes, which have the letters PS NY on the heels, as a gift. The heels on the retail version, which will go for $160 at Flight 23 stores in New York City exclusively, will read NY 23.
Like many of the products Public School designs, these shoes were inspired by New York City, which designer Dao-Yi Chow said "has long been an inspiration for Public School." Maxwell Osborne added that "the city is known for a love of basketball, its busy streets, and for its landscape, which helped us bring our vision to life."
This project isn't the only win Chow and Osborne have racked up this week. Just a few days ago, the two were named finalists for the International Woolmark Prize's menswear competition.
