Shoe Gallery x Brooks Regent “84 Fins”.

by Henrik Buzzi

Brooks Heritage teams up with Miami-based Shoe Gallery to launch the “84 Fins” Regent in celebration of the city’s sporting legends from the 1980’s and the culture of the decade. In addition to Miami’s athletic teams, “84 Fins” draws from the well of the era’s fashion and music culture for inspiration. Punk rock shows up in the shoe’s distressed denim to pay tribute to the decade’s spirit of rebellion. Deep indigo suede on the heel and toe compliments the denim and provides a touchpoint to honor the tradition of Miami’s blue and orange team colors. In specific recognition of the mid-80’s when Miami sports were at the height of their game, a teal and orange spray-fade combo on the tongue and vamp captures the look and feel of sports in 1984. A final nod to the shoe’s winning athletic spirit shows up in the gold and burgundy 3M heel tab that symbolises the adage “keeping the past behind us”. Dropping may 7 at selected retailers such as Hanon.
