Launched in 2005, Berlin/NYC-based online platform HIGHSNOBIETY has become a global authority on style, streetwear and sportswear. Over the past decade, these design disciplines have clashed and collided, influenced, intertwined and gradually blurred into one another. HIGHSNOBIETY has documented these developments, offering them incredible vantage to contribute their take on two highly popular styles in the Consortium series.
The Campus was built for NBA hardwood. Worn on courts through the 1970s, the Campus survived an era when basketball was a more violent, less vigilantly refereed sport. It enjoyed an illustrious post-NBA career in Hip Hop and later life as a fully-fledge lifestyle shoe. The Campus 80s encapsulates the potential for evolution within the lifespan of a sneaker, originally constructed in suede, this model features a never-seen-before glove leather upper and contrasting butter soft tan leather lining.
Today, HIGHSNOBIETY plays a pivotal role in the industry, narrating, dictating and driving changes as styles blend and roles are repurposed. Its collaboration ruminates on evolution, drawing together the Campus 80s - a classic sneaker that has undergone multiple lives and UltraBOOST - a younger model, showing early signs of embarking upon a similar journey.
