Liverpool’s Lost ART make their love for their home city known as they link up with Nike SB to explore “The Old and the New of Liverpool City”, with two collaborative styles of the Bruin and the BA silhouettes.
The shoe collaboration sees the two camps solidify their already strong relationship, with the independent store one of the first UK stockist for SB and remaining a key door for the brand till this day.
Lost ART draw inspiration from the cities iconic ‘Docklands’ and derelict LOR (Liverpool Overhead Railway) system, both of which have played a huge part in shaping Liverpool’s history, while also paying homage to cultural diversity and rich heritage of the area.
With the classic Bruin representing the ‘Old’ of the city, references come from the colour and materials applications of the LOR guards uniforms. Constructed from a rich pigskin suede, the shoes upper arrives in all-over black with hits of red and yellow on the mismatched swoosh branding. There is additional wool panelling on the heel counter, a contrasting white sole unit and tongue, with exclusive artwork on the insole to celebrate the release. The ‘New’ SB BA gets more of a modern rework with vibrant red on the heel and teal on the mid-foot meeting with a grey toe box, as a representation of the landscape that surrounds the infamous Docks. The BA silhouette sits on top of a clean white midsole and gum outsole.
Lost Art Skate Shop x Nike SB “The Old and the New of Liverpool City” pack will be dropping exclusively at lostartshop.co.uk on March 14th followed by a global release on March 21st.
