Firmament X New Balance Epic-Tr (L40)
Berlin is a dirty paradise. The German capital has a battalion of brutalist buildings wrought from hulking slabs of concrete and stone. It’s within one of these edifices that sneaker boutique FIRMAMENT is located. The store used their building, the Linienstrasse 40 or ‘L40’ in the Mitte district, as the inspiration for their recent collaboration with New Balance on a wintery Epic-TR colourway. The low-top soccer inspired sneaker appears in premium suede bearing the dark slate aesthetic of the building’s imposing façade.
