MSCHF (pronounced: Mischief) has never concealed its propensity for violating legal and artistic boundaries. The creative group has released a “5 O’Clock Shadow” colorway of the 1980s basketball sneaker-inspired Super Normal 2 design ahead of the holiday season.
The future sneakers will be offered exclusively via the MSCHF Sneakers app and in-person at the Perrotin Gallery in New York City on November 3rd. The sneakers include a liquified upper and a unique tread pattern on the outsole, likely to differentiate them from the Nike Air Force 1. Even the shoe’s uniform black hue represents the fun nature of the Brooklyn-based company.
The suede-covered item is far more wearing than the AC1 walking boot and Wavy Baby offers from the preceding eleven months. The Super Normal 2 debuted in a “Coke White” colorway that plainly references the name given to all-white sneakers in Harlem, Baltimore, and other related communities.
The equivalent of “5 O’Clock Shadow” will be offered for $185 USD online and in-person on a first-come, first-served basis. Following is a more in-depth examination of MSCHF’s most recent initiative.
