Fresh faced LA brand FairPlay team up with Brooks to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the infamous ‘Battle of Los Angeles’. The ‘battle’ took place when blazes of anti-aircraft fire lit up the sky above the City of Angels. The US government acknowledged the incident as an attempt to take down a stray weather balloon however conspiracy theorists suggest the targets were extraterrestrial spacecraft. It’s this mysterious sky-show that serves as inspiration for the Regent’s cosmic colourway. What we get here is a retro running silhouette bearing a midnight black upper set alight by reflective 3M embellishments taking cues from the flash of a UFO. Rounding it out, the black outersole shows speckled highlights reminiscent of gunfire in the night.
The FairPlay x Brooks Regent 'Battle of Los Angeles' will drop February 2017. Stay tuned.
