Almost one full year since releasing our first collaboration, my good friend Jon Buscemi and I are ready to unveil our latest project. Taking a different approach than our last release, we worked together to design a completely new silhouette called the 110MM.
In anticipation of the NBA All Star Game in New York City this year, we were inspired to create the most luxurious basketball shoe of all time. With All Star Weekend coinciding with New York Fashion Week, people will want to look stylish and wear basketball-inspired product, so releasing it one-week prior seemed like the perfect fit. The 110MM is rooted in Buscemi’s penchant for quality, as each model is handcrafted in Italy with the highest-grade Italian leathers available. The design composition is more intricate than previous Buscemi models, as I applied trapunto quilting amidst the quarter panels and tongue. The heel includes Buscemi’s signature padlock hardware in matte black, while Buscemi x Fieg branding is emblazoned on the white ripple Margom sole and tongue. After seeing the final version of the silhouette, we decided to go with a black and red combination, which is a colorway that Jon and I have loved since our early childhood.
