Officially dubbed the ‘Performance Art: Made to Wear Well’ collection, the project was originally released via Joe’s Instagram Stories earlier this month.
Manufactured in grey mesh base layers and playful pastel suede overlays, each 993 is paired with a yellowed, faux-aged midsole intended to elevate the heritage aspects of the silhouette. Each model will also come with a ‘Performance Art’ card explaining the inspiration behind the project.
