Watch: Fendi drops a chunky sneaker in the heat of a breakdance battle
The rooftop of Fendi's headquarters in Rome has seen much action. It's been canvas to graffiti artists contemplating the world's future, a playground for freerunners that parkoured in Fendi threads, and now, the dance floor to bboys and girls — dropping moves in the house's fresh sneakers.
The kicks in question? A chunky runner: sporting a highly-panelled upper (design-wise, a dream for colour-blocking and endless colourways), mesh inserts amidst a leather and suede upper (read: made for stunting one's socks) and, Fendi's comeback FF logo on a transparent tongue. Monikered 'Fancy Fendi', with comfort to fortify aesthetics by way of a thick, rubber sole and cushion gel bubble.
As a continuation of the house's 'F is For...' series celebrating mavericks, the sneaker makes its entrance in a dance battle; on the feet of seven award-winning and record-holding breakdancers who bust a move or three on Fendi's rooftop. Watch the shoe in action above, and browse the colourways below.
Fancy Fendi sneakers are available in stores now.
