Nestled in a lovely part of the Pacific, Kicks/Hi of Hawaii created a fun Pump 20 that drew inspiration from the ocean. The deep blue patent leather on the upper, along with the lighter, smooth blue leather, represent the ocean and its depths as well as the wet look water has. The white on the shoe mimics a wave’s crest, and rather poetically, the Pump ball represents the sun. My favorite detail on this Pump 20 is the hangtag that reads “You Know Where We Stay.”
SneakerFreaker interviewed Chris Kam of Kicks/Hi when the shoe launched; you can check that out here.
