Afew Presents the 1-of-1 New Balance 997 “Craftsmanship”
If there’s one word that sums up the appeal of New Balance sneakers, it probably is “craftsmanship”. Being huge fans of that premium quality, German sneaker store Afew now presents a 1/1 custom with the New Balance 997 Craftsmanship.
In the beginning of this project, Afew co-founder Marco worked out the shoe’s design. Just like they did with their “What The GEL-Saga”, the store then tapped customizer Tornschuhjette to manufacture the actual sneaker. With premium materials like cord, linen or vegetable tanned goatskin, this 1-of-1 “Made In Hamburg” custom is a truly unique version of the 997.
For even more NB celebration, Afew hosts the Craftsmanshipday on January 19 in their hometown of Düsseldorf. The event at the “Ninasagt” gallery includes a panel talk and a one of a kind New Balance archive exhibition. Panel guests include Tornschuhjette, Kish Kash, Thomas Lindie from Hanon / NB_Gallery as well as New Balance collectors like Ida Broen and newbalance365.
