The soul of a pattern only appears after it has been sewn together in the best possible way. It takes professionals time and patience before they can sew a shoe correctly, but if they master it, the soul of the silhouette is revealed.
The key to this process is the use of fibers in the form of wire. Photographer Bram Spaan focuses on its importance in shoe making and protects the power and flexibility it offers by attaching matching colored fabrics to the two Fusion 2.0s. By keeping them in position, he links the concept of form and acknowledges the importance of a correctly stitched upper.
The pairs combine premium suede with mesh and have a number of striking finishes, such as 3M details on the nose, the slogan "Finnsport" on the side of the back, as well as 3M threads along the middle panels.
Elsewhere, the sneaker has a full-length Fulcrum sole that encourages a smooth ride.
