SPX produces 80’s inspired high top sneakers in an abundance of styles and colors, including this polydactyl caricature I spotted in Namba, Osaka. With laces, Velco and no less than 5 tongues, what more could you possibly want from a sneaker?
SPX footwearlooks more like kid’s toys — with their eye-grabbing colors and over-the-top textures — than serious fashion gear. But priced north of $200, and always produced in limited amounts, these wares find regular customers among enthusiasts and collectors who are into vintage Nike Jordan-style shoes.
Although I don’t see myself owning a pair of SPX footwear anytime soon, I love the old school ghetto blaster shoebox they come in.
