The aptly named AESTHETNIK x Oliver Cabell release brings together two entities with a shared love of minimalism and beautiful design. NIK was a perfect choice to team up with – the Berlin-based artist cut his teeth by going against the grain of New York’s hypersaturated art scene by embracing a more minimalist approach to his work. Originally, NIK was immersed in the world of art and photography as a creative outlet before emerging as a pioneer in the hyper-minimalist photography movement. His distinct aesthetic piqued the interest of the crew at Highsnobiety – so much so that he is now the company’s image director.
When it comes to the manufacturing of AESTHETNIK x Oliver Cabell, this drop follows the brand’s signature ethos of sustainability, responsibility and transparency. Each of the super-limited run’s 75 pairs of sneakers has been handmade in Spain from the finest materials – we’re talking authentic full-grain deerskin, rubber, calfskin and waxed cotton all sourced from Italy. The quality materials and thoughtful design ensure that the sneakers will fit like a glove from the first wear – no need to deal with breaking these bad boys in.
The AESTHETNIK x Oliver Cabell release dropped in the States on Tuesday with the first release selling out in record time – you can head to the website to sign up for the next restock.
