A mix of real and synthetic leather, satin overlays and premium embroidery combine to celebrate the people and culture of New York City’s Ghanaian community. While embroidered backtabs honor Little Accra, a heavily Ghanaian enclave in the Bronx, metallic dubraes and graphics on the insoles encourage sharing stories and building community.
Metallic dubraes feature the adinkra symbols for "Sankofa," which represents the importance of retrieving valuable knowledge from the past, and "Nserewa," which represents wealth and abundance. Stitched leather overlays on the upper add premium style, durability and support. Originally designed for performance hoops, Nike Air cushioning adds lightweight, all-day comfort. Padding at the collar feels soft and comfortable while the low-cut silhouette adds a clean, streamlined look. Full-length rubber outsole with classic hoops pivot circles and star design at the toe adds traction, durability and heritage style.
