Releases on July 9, 2023

The long-awaited moment has arrived! Across international borders (Singapore –  Indonesia), a kawan-kawan friendship flared 5 years ago, resulting in a project that has been delayed for the last two; finally, the Saint Barkley and Sole Superior sneakers baby will be previewed in Indonesia for the first time. Expect a fresh pair of sneakers that looks and smells like scratch-and-sniff stickers from the 1980’s. Hella dope!

The collaboration, which was first presented in Singapore at  Sole Superior 2022 last November and introduced to Indonesian audiences at Jakarta Sneaker Day in February 2023, garnered unplanned buzz and notoriety when the sample pairs were taken from the secured exhibit. In a positive tone,  Saint Barkley and Sole Superior both offered a reward for any help in finding the samples, congratulating the sneaker thief for having “Terrific Taste, Terrible Ethics”. The samples were never found.

Satisfyingly, the combination will finally reach both brands’ followers on July 9, 2023. The sneakers, which are limited to 500 pairs, will be available in-person at Saint Barkley’s headquarters in Bandung and online exclusively on Saint Barkley’s Shopee SG shop.
