Manila’s number one basketball store, Titan, are celebrating their sixth anniversary this year with a special collaborative ball boot. The retail mavericks have teamed up with contemporary label Brandblack, for a motorcycle inspired version of the popular J.Crossover 3 model.
The collaboration takes inspiration from a cult TV show in the Phillipines called Mr. Mayhem, which chronicles the nefarious activities of a fictional outlaw motorcycle club. The shoe’s pale blue shroud takes cues from the tank and fender on the Knucklehead ridden by the club’s leader, while the black forefoot and leather accents reflect the quilted seat of the chopper. A few hits of chrome have been added to the dual-branded tongue and sock liner – popping extra hard when the shroud is removed, taking the form of a bolt-wielding Titan mascot. The release is limited to 366 pairs worldwide, while a super exclusive ‘contraband’ pack, with the slick wooden box as pictured, will be available to nine lucky customers.
The Titan x Brandblack J.Crossover 3 ‘Mr. Mayhem’ will be available at Titan Fort on August 25 and will be available online from August 27.
