Military uniforms give a heavy impression of functionality and protection, and the new collaboration sneakers is exactly that! Using his signature L28 Ventile fabric for the upper lining of the sneaker, Cabourn has ensured that the shoes will defend the wearer under even the most hostile environments. The material was developed as WWII flight suits material to protect the pilot when they eject from their planes. The tightly woven cotton makes it wind and water resistance, and is still used by the British Royal Air Force today!
