While going through the new Monocle issue, my eyes were caught by those superb white sneakers by Erik Schedin. They are on sale exclusively on his website which is very conceptual. Ultra minimal, no information about the author just a series of products for sale online with no apparent link (a Pledge Furniture Wax, a Bag made from vintage sail, a ACME Thunderer,…) except the overall clean design aspect. Not sure i’m really getting the message if there is one but one thing for sure: I’m very attracted by those white sneakers in a similar spirit as the white Common Projects Achilles low. The simplest drawing you can imagine with nothing superfluous, like the visual definition of “white sneakers”. Is it a sign (?): they only come in one size… mine…
