In an interesting collaboration Colt 45 teamed up with etnies to produce a pair of sneakers using the signature Colt 45 colorway and branding. Shown in the pictures here provided by High Snobiety we can easily see the resemblence as the photo shoot was setup inside a fridge next to a Colt 45 can. Navy blue paneling, which is inspired by the Colt 45 text on the can, is included on majority of the front and heel section of the shoes, with yellow leather to resemble the gold trim along the top of the can included on the mid section. A strip of white leather finds itself laid out across the yellow leather mid-panel as well as on the heel spine. If the colorway itself doesn’t bring out that Colt 45 inspiration enough theres always the Colt 45 logo included on the heel to ensure no mistaken who this collaboration was done with.
For all those who would like to get their hands on a pair we are sorry to tell you this but the sneakers were actually released in late October and are extremely limited. A search on eBay and many of the resale sites don’t even turn up a single pair so i’m sure all the malt liquor drinkers out there who scooped a pair up are defiantly planning on holding on to em. If you haven’t seen em before click here to check out a few more pictures.
